I'm in the mood for a riddle

Fujiko 01-16-2005 04:02 AM
Okay, lately I have come upon a few riddles. I know some of you have some in the back of your heads as well ^_~ If you wish to share, that would be perfect. But here are the rules:

1. The riddle must make sense
2. Please quote the riddle when you answer it. People are easily confused if the answer has no question.
3. Yes, you can put down more than one riddle if you wish.

Okay, ready? ^_^

here is mine:

An equal.

A captain was being executed for treason. He had the opportunity to make a last statement. If his statement was true then he would be hung. If it was false then he would be shot. He made a statement and was released...

What did he say?

An oldie, but a goodie:

As I was going to Saint Ives,
I met a man with seven wives.
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits.
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives:
How many were going to Saint Ives?

Should I just give the answer to mine, then? For those of you who haven't read it:

A captain was being executed for treason. He had the opportunity to make a last statement. If his statement was true then he would be hung. If it was false then he would be shot. He made a statement and was released...

What was the statement?

Someone, please...
