Riddles

1. What word can be written forward, backward or upside down, and can still be read from left to right?



2. What can run but never walks, has a mouth but never talks, has a head but never weeps, has a bed but never sleeps?



Answers anyone?

Good job on the second one. But the first one is an actual, not an abbreviation.

The first one is the word "I".

Nope! Hint: It's a four letter word.

There is not a single word in the English language that will work. I'm sure the word you are looking for is NOON, but if you spell it upside down, it cannot be read correctly, not even if you spell it backwards. If you don't believe me, draw it out. The only letters that can be spelled forwards, backwards, and upside down and look exactly alike are uppercase h, uppercase i, lower case l, upper and lower case o, and upper and lower case x. If you can get a word with those letters, you deserve a high five.
