Pretty nice how I've gotten this far...thought I would stop at one riddle in 2013, but here I am, reviving the old riddle-a-week here. So, here was the riddle from last time, and hopefully some readers have thought about it...

A monkey, a squirrel, and a bird are racing to the top of a coconut tree. Who will get the banana first, the monkey, the squirrel, or the bird?

Now let me give you moment to think about that if you haven't already...

*pauses for probably five seconds*

Okay, done. the answer was...No one! There's no bananas in a coconut tree! Haha! Good one. I've been saving it for two for this week's riddle...

How many people are on the bus at this point?

So, what it's saying is...10 people went on the bus first, then at the next stop, 5 people got off. There are 5 people left...although, 20 new people get onto the bus, and there are now 25...but then the 25 people get many are left?

That's for you to decide! Comment below to have a guess! Go on! You can do it! C'mon, the comments thing is below...yep...down there...but think first, don't forget...that...
