Hello, Very Happy

In Asturias the conundrums, the riddles, are called "cosadielles".
Here I am proposing new cosadielles:

1. Adevina , Perogrullu
cual ye el bichu
que pica´n bandullu Shocked

2. ¿Que cosa cosadiella ye
que de furaco en furaco va andando
con les tripes arrastrando? Shocked

3. Un tarreñin de bomborombón
que no tien culo nin tapón Shocked Shocked


Answers.........Are you game?

Marta Very Happy


Tentative translation: Embarassed

1. Guess, Pero Grullo,
which is the bug
that stings the guts.

2. What thing it is
that goes from hole to hole
dragging its guts?

3. A little jar (I am afraid that "bomborombón" is not translatable)
that has not bottom nor cap.

Well, then, it must be a contemporary college student! (I'm joking.)

Pues, entonces, es cierto que es un universitario coetáneo, ¡¿no?! (Bromo.)

An egg? (el huevo?)

This one also reminds me of the English riddle "a bottomless vessel to put flesh and blood in" (a ring).

Laughing Bob is rigth!, riddle 3 is an egg.
Sad Betty, you have to try again.....the golf ball goes from hole to hole, but nothing is drugging behind it (this is an important clue to solve the riddle).
Marta.

Yes Marta, I see your point on the dragging it's guts behind...
My new guess is - An earthworm?
