Riddle: Why is an avaricious man like one with a short memory?
This riddle here might be classified as a funny riddle rather than an informative one, for you need to see the play on words to solve it. An avaricious man only thinks about what he can get from other people or different situations.
On the other hand, a short memory is the host of the memories that one does not repeat much and eventually forgets. With these in mind, these two men sound irrelevant; however, the riddle indicates they are related in one way. An avaricious man is like one with a short memory because he is always for getting.
The answer : Because he is always for getting.
