Let’s take a break from feminist strippers, pot smoking, and legal hookersÂ with today’s Inquisition. It’sÂ just a fun a riddle. Feel free to use the comments toÂ discuss itÂ with other readers as well asÂ to offer your solution.
My first is followed by my second;
Yet should my first my second see,
A dire mishap it would be reckoned,
And sadly shocked my first would be.
Were I but what my whole implies,
And passed by chance across your portal,
You’d cry, `Can I believe my eyes?
I never saw so queer a mortal!’
For then my head would not be on,
My arms their shoulders must abandon;
My very body would be gone,
I should not have a leg to stand on.
Can you name me?
(I’llÂ giveÂ hints in the comments shouldÂ the riddleÂ proveÂ too difficult. Also, we apparently don’t have a spoiler tag, so if you can figure out how to hide spoilers, please do so with your solution.)
