Riddle

I think a little light relief is in order.

When LK and I were on vacation in Maine we stopped at a seafood restaurant in Bar Harbor and had a cocktail while we waited for our table to be ready. The barman poured us both a hefty gin martini and asked:

"What is more powerful than God
More evil than the devil
Rich people want it
Poor people have it
and if you eat it you will die"

I'm proud to say that, such is the power of a gin martini, I got it. And to give you a hint - the answer is not 'cheese' or a 'whale shark' which were my coworkers guesses.

No googling!

I heard this riddle in high school and my class spent days on it and I came up with the answer. It was one of my proudest moments.

Good luck with everything else!

Hey--I'm just now catching up on 10 months of blogs (LONG story): but I'm sorry to hear about the world-is-endingness, and wish you all a speedy return to normalcy and happiness....

Ha! My first guess was "dirt".
