First is atleast one word or two?
Now for his riddle
A fellow encountered a bear in a wasteland. There was nobody else there. Both were frightened and ran away. Fellow to the north, bear to the west. Suddenly the fellow stopped, aimed his gun to the south and shot the bear.
What color was the bear?
***If you don't know, this may help you: if the bear ran about 3.14 times faster than the fellow (still westwards), the fellow could have shot straight in front of him, however for the booty he would have to go to the south

The guy goes north, and the bear goes west. The guy fires to the south at the bear. The only place that can happen is at the north pole. Therefore, the bear is white.

That's one of the oldest ones in the book.

Here's another old one for ya:

What has a head but never thinks,
Has a bed but never sleeps,
Has a mouth but never talks,
Always runs and never walks?

@Cycloptichorn,
Here's one for ya:

There are 5 ships in a port.
The Greek ship leaves at six and carries coffee.
The ship in the middle has a black chimney.
The English ship leaves at nine.
The French ship with a blue chimney is to the left of a ship that carries coffee.
To the right of the ship carrying cocoa is a ship going to Marseille.
The Brazilian ship is heading for Manila.
Next to the ship carrying rice is a ship with a green chimney.
A ship going to Genoa leaves at five.
The Spanish ship leaves at seven and is to the right of the ship going to Marseille.
The ship with a red chimney goes to Hamburg.
Next to the ship leaving at seven is a ship with a white chimney.
The ship on the border carries corn.
The ship with a black chimney leaves at eight.
The ship carrying corn is anchored next to the ship carrying rice.
The ship to Hamburg leaves at six.
Which ship goes to Port Said? Which ship carries tea?

@JazzMinnie,
Correct, a river. Too easy.

Yours, I think, is probably the ship headed to Genoa, the French ship. I didn't work out the matrix but that seems to be the right answer.

@Cycloptichorn,
Good Answer. I'm not sure if it's right, I'll google it, (I've been working on that for about a week.) Would you like another riddle?

@Cycloptichorn,
I've given you enough hard ones here's an easy one:
Two children, who were all tangled up in their reckoning of the days of the week, paused on their way to school to straighten matters out. "When the day after tomorrow is yesterday," said Priscilla, “then 'today' will be as far from Sunday as that day was which was 'today' when the day before yesterday was tomorrow!"
On which day of the week did this puzzling prattle occur?

I know I said it was probably right, but I was wrong the actual answer is:
Quote:
The Spanish ship goes to Port Said and French ship carries tea. However, tea can be carried by the Brazilian ship, too, if you understood position ‘to the right’ as anywhere on the right side from the given point (not only right next to).
