Neither of those are original riddles, and you've already given us the answers to them. I don't see the logic behind making an entirely new thread for these two riddles rather than just posting them in a preexisting riddle thread.

And don't give us the answers next time.

I am giving the answers because if no one response to my brainteaser that means it's gone

If you want your thread to survive, suggestions are to write the riddles in poetry form, so they pass off as Art. Limericks or sonnets can serve a dual purpose of being Art and a riddle.

And of course, make it original. Just a thought if you want to continue this properly.

Just curious, but why does writing a riddle not count enough as writing to you, Nichodemus?

People have much less of a reason to respond to a riddle if you give them the answer.

The boy is the doctor's son,but the doctor isn't the boys father.Who is the doctor ?

The doctor is the boy's mother. I answered that same basic riddle on page 5 of the thread I linked to.

Another reason to stick to preexisting riddle threads.

Mary. Again, not an original riddle. If you want to post preexisting riddles somewhere, does it not make the most sense to post it in a preexisting riddle thread?
