Riddle/Joke Thread

I figure that we're a bunch of smart people, so we can have a thread like this. Razz When you think you've figured a riddle out, say what you think here and the teller of the riddle can PM you to say whether you're right, wrong, on the right track, or took a wrong turn at Alberquerque. Unless the answer is really obviously the answer posted here, in which case the riddle is considered solved.

Riddle #1:
Beyond a door, there lies a green mirror. A brunette can go through, but a blonde can't. Pepper can go through, but salt can't. Evil can't go through, but good can. What can go through the mirror?

Hey, if this is a riddle AND joke thread, that means we can post non-riddle like jokes, right? Like those "man walks into a bar and says ouch" ones that are just read and its funny? =/

Cause I dont know many riddles, and the one I do know, I cant remember the details for XD
Chocolate Ninja

But of course! Razz As long as they're not in terrible taste, and should probably keep 'em PG-13ish.

Here are a few:

Why can't a man living in North Carolina be buried west of the Mississippi River?

You have two U. S. coins that equal 55 cents. One of the coins isn't a nickel. What are the coins?

How far can a dog run into the woods?

Contemporary and reletively easy, I know, but they can be fun.
Skybait J

Halfway, for the dog one.

... Because he's living in North Carolina and therefore doesn't need to be buried yet.

Two men were playing poker in a room with 53 bicycles, and now one of them is dead. What happened?

A 50-cent coin, and a nickel. (One of them is not a nickel; the other one is.)

Not the version of the riddle I've heard before, but anyway:
One man had been cheating - the 53 "bicycles" are the marks he placed on the backs of the cards, so he'd know what he was dealing. The other man found out he was being cheated, and one thing led to another...

Erm... a brunette, pepper, and good? Seriously, though, it seems like dark things so far, though I'm not entirely sure how good fits into that category better than evil. (But, hey, the Stormtroopers wore white, and the Rebel Alliance wore dark colours.)
firemastrr

Easy enough. Try this:

What does a man love more than life,
Fear more than death or mortal strife?
What the poor have, the rich require,
And all contented men desire.
What misers spend, and spendthrifts save,
And all men carry to the grave.
Skybait J

Hey! That's the one I couldn't remeber the wording to!

It's nothing!

I get the idea that the door thing is relevant, although the next logical step then is a blonde joke about being unable to get past doors. o.O

Anything whose name is spelled with a double letter. Jelly can get through, but jam can't, etc.

I was thinking that it might had been colors (brunette, pepper, and evil are thought of as dark colors while blonde, salt, and good are thought of as light colors.), but I didn't think of that...

No, you read it wrong. Brunette, pepper, and good can pass through, and evil can't.
Naryu Elda

Ah. xD I got them mixed up, I suppose.

This should be easy: Max prefers men, but isn't gay. How is that possible?
Konoko

Max is a girl.

A girl from Batman of the Future.
