For those of you who like riddles, here’s a riddle that is posed three times, with variations, in James Joyce’s book Finnegans Wake:

 

 Mark the Wans, why do I am alook alike a poss of porterpease?

 Mark the Twy, why do I am alook alike two poss of porterpease?

 Mark the Tris, why do I am alook alike three poss of porterpease?

 

  FW 21.18 Wans

  FW 22.05 Twy

  FW 22.29 Tris

 

In the spirit of Meta-Fours, I will add a fourth:

 

Mark the Quad, why do I am alook alike four poss of porterpease?

 

 FW 21.18 = Finnegans Wake, page 21, line 18.
