Here it is: (courtesy of my 13 year old daughter)

I turn polar bears white
and I will make you cry.
I make guys have to pee
and girls comb their hair.
I make celebrities look stupid
and normal people look like celebrities.
I turn pancakes brown
and make your champagne bubble.
If you sqeeze me, I'll pop.
If you look at me, you'll pop.
Can you guess the riddle?


97% of Harvard graduates can not figure this riddle out, but 84% of kindergarten students were able to figure this out in 6 minutes or less. Can you guess the correct answer?

Help!!

My answer...

My answer would be "no, I can't." Perhaps I am just not as "learn-ed" as kindergarten students (or I still think like them) or I just do not have as much problem admitting that I do not have the answer to "everything" as some Harvard grads might.

Hey Paul, do you have the cite to back-up the stats on this question as it related to the percentage of Harvard grads vs. kindergarten students that get it right?

Just read the last line and answer what it is asking.

There are only two possible answers. It doesn't ask you who? what? when? where? why?

It simply asks if you can guess the riddle.

I did a copy/paste from my daughters "myspace" webpage. She found it on the web somewhere - statistics attached. My answer is "no" also.

My simple yes/no answer is NO.

So, did you find out if that is really the answer?

Don't leave us hanging. I don't want to be outsmarted by a kindergarten student.
Kindergarten students can be sharp....sharper than Hahvaaad grads.

The answer is "pressure" but I can't see how kindergarten students would say that.

// I cheated and goggled it.

Whereas everybody knows that kindergarten kiddies live in the greatest of awe for Chuck Norris (and rightly so), so I'd say my answer is far more plausible, no?

I thought DNA made polar bears white, or at least their fur.
