Shakespeare Loved Riddles

Here’s one of my favorite riddles by Shakespeare:

shakespeare

“Who builds stronger things than a stonemason, a shipbuilder, or a carpenter?”

The answer is a gravedigger. “… The houses that he makes last till doomsday.

The riddle comes from Act V of Hamlet, and it’s told, of course, by a gravedigger.
