2014 Riddling Derby #2 RESULTS!

Welcome, readers one and all, to Iron Wyvern. Riddling derby #2 of 2014 is now, henceforth and forevermore, closed. We'll be announcing the winner in just a second, but first, we will recount the riddles, and their successive answers, upon this occasion.

Riddle Number One:
Mary's father has five daughters, four of whom are Nana, Nene, Nini, and Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?

The Answer: Mary.

Riddle Number Two:
What has four eyes but cannot see?

The Answer: Mississippi, or really anything with four i's in it that can't see anything.

Riddle Number Three:
A man was driving a truck. His lights were off, and the moon was not out, but there was a woman in the road up ahead. How did he see and avoid her?

The Answer: It was daytime.

Now, our two contestants this week, Hyperlinkzer and Dmitri Pendragon, were very closely matched, but in the end, one rose to become the WINNER of the Second Riddling Derby of 2014, and that blogger was......drumroll......:

Hyperlinkzer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (click here to check out his blog)

Congrats, Hyperlinkzer! You will be inducted into the Hall of Riddlers. Be sure to tune in the next time we post a riddling derby so you can defend your title as Master Riddler.

And here is the link to Taisia Tinuviel's blog: click here. We didn't include it last week, I don't believe.

Anyway, have fun with the nonexistent master riddler's wreath! Your name will be up in the Hall of Riddlers A.S.A.P.

And now for some draconian fun facts.


Scaligar says that castle-tipping is too childish for the likes of him, but he secretly sneaks out every once in a while to push one over.

Trubodox keeps a healthy correspondence with a family of cows in the Eastern provinces. Yes, that's right, talking cows are  for real, and these ones have a typewriter!

Semithino, in the years before he started to correspond with his nephew Smok, was known as somewhat of a depressed recluse. Some suspect he came out of his slump for the sole reason that he now had another sentient being to talk to, as opposed to his braindead relatives.

-That's all for now,
