Come on L-Kira, this thread is supposed to be fun and light hearted. It's not a competition so please don't take things personally.
 

Quite right. L-Kira needs to cool the jets.

That's a good one. Did you make it up, or did you borrow it?

In general, the more time I take the more I get left behind.
(However in certain circumstances, the more time I take the better).

In anticipation of getting it right I've got another riddle.

Two mothers and two daughters go to McDonalds and buy one hamburger for each of them. The cashier hands them THREE hamburgers and they all leave eating a separate burger. How is this possible?

Oh bum! That was quick.

Oh well, Omid is the queen of riddles. I should have guessed she'd get it.  ;D

In that case, here's TWO more to test her puzzling skills:

What kind of coat can only be put on when wet?

AND

What can go up a chimney down but not down a chimney up?

Aha. That's gotcha!

Your first answer is CORRECT. Well done Omid.

Your second answer is .......

Ok here's the next one please!

BenV wanted to leave all of his money to one of his three friends, but he didn't know which one he should give it to. He gave each of them a few coins and told them to buy something that would be able to fill their living room.
 
John Chapman bought straw, but there was not enough to fill the room.
 
Geezer bought some sticks, but they still did not fill the room.
 
BORED Chemist  bought two things that filled the room, so he obtained BenV's fortune.

What were the two things that BORED chemist bought? ;) ;) ;)

Actually, I'm such a smarta*** I can fill the room with just one object. It rhymes with something you could do with the straw John bought.
