Ravens and Desks

Why is a raven like a writing desk?
                                                           - Lewis Carroll


  1. Isn't this one of those riddles that have no official answers?

    It's from Alice in Wonderland.

  2. True, but there have been answers given. For instance, 'Poe wrote on both' works as an answer. It's definitely one of those that makes you think.

  3. I should add that I have seen answers from Carroll on the web (I haven't verified it). "Because it can produce a few notes, tho they are very flat; and it is nevar put with the wrong end in front!"

    Note that nevar is not misspelled.
