# Riddle me this

Found 28th Feb 2008
5 midgets go up in any airballon.
Goes up into the sky, 1000 feet of the ground.
Nothing but sky above them and no access to any ladder or helicopter or any platform (nothing to do with question)
Airballon is watched from the ground and noone leaves the airballon
After 3 hours the ballon deflats slowly and they come SAFTEY to the ground.
Now there is only 3 midgets in the airballon.

What happen to the other members..?

Groups
1. Misc

they jumped?

rest two are out of the airballon

Well, they needed some fuel...

:evil: BURN THE MIDGETS! :evil::p

( no + one) left the balloon leaving 3

'go up in any air balloon'

3 go up in one balloon, the other 2 go in another

Funny answer. but they are not cannibals.

As it was deflating slowly, the other two just jumped out as it neared the ground?

BTW, there are no penguins at the north pole.

Close, but no, was watched from the ground and no midgets left the ballon.
Thanks for the info on the birds, didn't know that..!

2 were in a different air balloon?

2 have been sucked by some sort of vortex into the balloon itself and 3 were left in the basket.
2 were chopped into little pieces and hidden in undergarments by the other 3.
2 of them vapourised on exposure to harmful sunshine while the other 3 crouched down.
Am I right yet?

the little one said roll over, twice

two midgets have swallowed all the air and can no longer be classified as midgets?

Come on then guru, put us out our misery...

Its riddle-central on here today :-D

Give us a clue

Does the '3 hours before the balloon starts to deflate' have anything to do with the answer

Does it have anything to do with the "1000 feet off the ground" and "is watched from the ground"?

Also, if it goes up into the sky, wont clouds block the view of anyone watching.
Stupid riddle has got me thinking!

No one leaves the balloon, but 2 leave the basket under the balloon?

other balloon is still up there with the other two in

wheres my prize

Were they (too) two short?

Oh good lord, I think we may have a winner here! :w00t:

would the answer still be the same if they were'nt midgets, or is the fact that they are play a key role?

Cracker....This has to be the answer.

Is it more or does this make less sense than the actual riddle? :thinking:

In the order of events the balloon is watched from the ground and noone leaves and it then lands. You say nothing about if anyone has left after it lands. So my answer is:

Two left after it lands leaving three remaining.

Am I close?

Is this a proper riddle or are you just taking the p*ss

One Day my Friends and I were out shooting Midget in ballons.

We watched 5 midgets go up in a ballon.
Went really high 1000 feet of the ground.

After shoting my AK-47 and punctured the ballon,
We sat and laughted - ha ha he he,

But going to claim our prize (midget are easy afixed to a wall for display)

There were only 3 in the basket...!

Now we have to replace them from the circus.
But hoping that the packing wont be too expensive as they are not that big.

Hope this help, thanks all for the help in my riddle...!

wtf.....
