Did he saw his way through the Sheetrock ceiling...or maybe there is no ceiling.  Would another possible answer be that the floor was dirt and he dug his way out?

As a kid I loved riddles.  As an adult, I love math.  (and buses)

Happy new year to you as well.

He uses the saw to cut the table,chair or bat in half, he then puts the two pieces back together to make a hole, he climbs out the hole and escapes.

Here's a hard one.... thumb1


I'm a riddle in nine syllables,
An elephant, a ponderous house,
A melon strolling on two tendrils
O red fruit, Ivory, fine timber!
The loaf's big with it's yeasty rising
Money's new minted in this fat purse.
I'm a means, a stage, a cow in calf.
I've eaten a bag of green apples
Boarded the train there's no getting off.

Correct he uses the saw to cut the table in 2 halfs which then make a hole he uses to escape, or He plays the piano until he finds the right key...or He takes the bat- three strikes and hes out..

How much dya pay for that??  :043: :110: :116:
