Riddle:  Why is an orange not like a church bell?

When you first hear this riddle, you may not come up with an answer. You may think that the orange and the church bell have nothing to do with each other. Try to find a common similarity, but pay attention not only to action but also to word similarities.

 

If you still can’t think of an answer, let me explain! An orange is like a church bell because is never peeled (pealed) but once. Did you get it now? Peeling means removing the outer covering or skin from the fruit, and pealing means ringing the bells loudly.

The answer is:  Because it is never peeled (pealed) but once.
