Riddle: Why is a man in debt like a misty morning? What is the answer this riddle?
The answer of this riddle is that because he is surrounded with dues (dews). A wordplay is used in the answer of this riddle. Dues are the payments that a man in debt must make. What matters most to a man in debt is the dues he has to pay and that’s why he is surrounded with dues.
Dews are the tiny drops of water that form mist in a misty morning. A foggy morning consists of drops of water, and a man in debt consists of dues. Such an answer is given because the pronunciation of the words dues and dews is the same.
Answer: Because he is surrounded with dues (dews).
