A Riddle Wrapped in an Enigma

April 19, 2006

"Orange Bear, you do look quite ill."

"I feel quite ill."

Mr. Crumpet finds Orange Bear lying on his back and holding his stomach. A few inches away — an open box and crumpled-up brown wrapping paper.

Mr. Crumpet inspects the wrapping paper.

"I see you found Dear Old Grandmum's package."

"Tell me, why do I find Dutch licorice in a nice round box 'Made in Holland' wrapped in brown paper postmarked 'Nederland'?"

"Orange Bear. How many?"

Orange Bear pokes the air with a furry finger.

"1…2…3…12 honing drops drops drops."

(Honey licorice shaped like beehives!)
