The newspaper riddle is a joke, a riddle or conundrum that begins with the question:
Q: What is black and white and red all over?
The traditional answer, which relies upon the fact that the words "red" and "read" are homophones, is:
A: A newspaper
Barrick believes this riddle to be "perhaps the most common example of a folk riddle collected in the United States in the twentieth century", pointing out that between 1917 and 1939 it appeared in 15 collections of folk riddles, and in a further six between 1939 and 1974.
