    4 boys go to a park,
    Where they find a tree with 4 oranges on it.
    Each ate one orange,
    3 oranges were left.

    How is this possible?



    Note: The first to answer correctly gets to choose between the prize of a cookie or a unicorn.

    UPDATE:
    The winner is Little Tail Chaser!

    CORRECT ANSWER:
    'Each' was the name of one of the boys.

    UPDATE 2:Another riddle posted...

    What will attract attention but have no real value?


    The first person to answer correctly will get to choose between a rainbow and a pot of gold.

    UPDATE 3:
    The winner is emcat!

    CORRECT ANSWER:
    Red herring
