"I have an amazing talent; I know almost every song that has ever existed."


The rich guy laughed at Fred, but that didn't deter him. Fred invited the man to bet all his money, promising to sing a song with a lady's name of his choice. The rich man couldn't believe it.

After giving it a long thought, the rich man agreed and named his daughter Joanna Armstrong-Miller. At the end of the day, Fred went home with all of the rich man's money. What song do you think Fred sang?


Hint: It is a song that everyone knows. You must have also sung it at a point in your life.

Answer 2: It simple, the happy birthday song is a tune that anyone can sing with anybody's name. Can you remember singing it at some point in your life?

Answer 3: For the final riddle, you need to leave home with just two cakes. Remember that you're to give the trolls half and then receive one in return. At each bridge, you'd end up with two cakes.
