If you could put one up, it'd be nice.

All right. This is one I usually use:

Four talented men sat down to play,
And played all night 'till break of day.
They played for cash and not for fun
With separate score for every one.
When it came time to square accounts,
They all had made good fair amounts.
Not one has lost, but all have gained,
Can you this paradox explain?

CounterAttack:

Anarchemitis:
What is yours but your friend uses more than you do?

Your name.

It's a String Quartet

Meh, that's the best answer I'll get. The exact answer I was looking for was "Musicians hired to perform". Go right ahead, Fury.

A very rich nobleman has two sons. In his will, he writes. "I'll determine who getsall my wealth through a race. My two sons are to race from this town to the next on horseback. Whoever's horse makes it there first, loses and does not get my wealth." So the sons saddle up and start riding their horses, at a snail's pace. After five days, they finally stop at a local pub, in between the towns in a small village. They know they're not getting anyhere. A man in the bar notices their distress and says, "What's bothering you two?" They proceed to explain to him the details of the race. He gives them a bit of advice. The next day, both brothers are ridin as fast as they can to the other town.

WHAT DID THE MAN IN THE BAR TELL THEM?

"Take each other's horse."

CounterAttack:

You're all going to hate me for this one:
