Do you know the answer to The Mad Hatter’s riddle?
During the Tea Party in Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter asks: “Why is a raven like a writing desk?”
No answer is given in the book (would an author dare try that today?) and smart as Alice is she can’t figure it out.
Over the years academics have pondered the problem and some have come up with one possible answer:
‘Because Poe wrote on both’.
Have to admit, not exactly LOL funny, but you can read Edgar Allen Poe’s poem The Raven by clicking HERE.
