    From Paul Harvey:

    "What is great than God, more evil than the Devil, poor people have it, rich people need it and if you eat it you die."

    Does anyone know the answer to this riddle?


    EDIT: added the ending.

    Yeah, the answer's nice and simple to the point of pissing you off! [​IMG] Also, there's a final part to the riddle: ...rich people need it....and if you eat it you die.
    Answer: Nothing

    Yeah. The full version of this one runs, "What is greater than God, more evil than the Devil, poor people have it, rich people need it, and if you eat it you will die."

    That last phrase makes the solution more obvious.

    Regards,

    Joe
