Riddle and Rhyme

Vee had put up a flower’s picture as a riddle in his post and asked the readers to guess its name. I was lucky and shrewd ๐Ÿ˜› enough to guess it and now I have to do the “riddle me this” tag.

But I wasn’t satisfied to put up an image only. I decided to make up a riddle for it. Here goes my riddle and the image. Comments section is open to guesses. The first person who guesses it correctly shall be the winner.

He was the hero ofย  Nottinghamshire,

Noneย  matched his skills at this sport.

His name, if you don’t know Sire,

Solving the riddle you please here abort.

Did I fail to deter you in your quest?

Good then, all the best.

The second part of his weapon at this game,

That’s the first part of this fish’s name.

Oh,remember to remove one letter that is twice,

I warn you, this riddle is not for any novice.

She hails from Vasilissa’s place,

Sport and modeling she did embrace.

The first part of what her parents and fans call her,

That’s the remaining part of fish’s name , sir.

Oh,remember to remove one letter that is twice,

I warn you, this riddle is not for any novice.

So, what is the name of the fish?

Rack your brains to win, if you wish.


P.S. The winner has to continue the “riddle me this” tag within two weeks of the results.

  3. Ha HA! That’s a very easy one. That’s a Arawona!! If you want me to specific then it’s the Red tailed Silver Arawona. Right? Of course I’m right, I love them and they are supposed to bring luck. I bought 3 of them as babies (just a finger long) and in eight months they are almost a feet long. Now of course they fight too much and I had to put them into 3 seperate tanks. I’ve offers for upto 3000 Rs for them

    Reema: Wow!! that costly??
