If precious asks, and it doesn't answer, we eats it, my preciousss. If it asks us, and we doesn't answer, then we does what it wants, eh?

What has roots as nobody sees,
Is taller than trees,
Up, up it goes,
And yet never grows?

The person who solves the previous riddle asks the next one
Me Grimlock not nice Dino! Me bash brains!

OK then, what can go up a chimney down, but not down a chimney up? (This is an ordinary house chimney by the way)LOL

I'm sorry, Nick, but no. I'll give you a clue, it's something you don't usually stick up a chimney, but might be held in a similar fashion to the brush in your picture.Smile

A. 
I had an idea that to answer such a question you would probably have to think outside of the box, but I'm not so sure now.LOL

I could think of two, coming from the way your question was written. The first would be a hole, as you make one in the construct of the box itself. My second, and this is where the irony of thinking outside of the box comes in, a light(candle or torch...etc...) as inside the wooden box would be probably dark, and the light would illuminate the inside.

Inside a green house was a white house. Inside the white house was a red house containing lots of black babies. The red house was bigger than all the other houses.

I'm sorry, Nick, I didn't need to work that one out as I already knew it. It's a watermelon. I hope this doesn't count as cheating. If it does, Nick, then have another go.
