What can you knit without knitting needles - your brows.
What do liars do when they die - they lie still.
What burns to keep a secret - sealing wax.
What is that which is bought by the yard, and is worn by the foot - carpet.
What is it that is full of holes yet holds water - a sponge.
What is like half the moon - the other half.
What tune makes everybody glad - Fortune.
What is always behind time - the back of a watch.
