Frank looked up from his paper as someone knocked politely before entering his office. Smiling broadly, Frank set the paper down on his desk and walked out to shake his guest’s hand.
“Ah, excellent, it’s good to see you my good man. I assume the job went well?”
'My good man' was The Puzzler, the most skilled hitman in Chicago. Normally an assassin of his quality would be out of Frank’s price range, but The Puzzler came at a discount because of his singular eccentricity: he always asked his victim a puzzle or riddle before killing them. If they solved it, he let them live and returned his payment. 'The job' was to kill Frank’s rival, Jimmy “Blue Eyes” Lucas, who had been moving into Frank’s territory over the last few months.
After a moment, Frank prompted The Puzzler again. “Well? What happened?”
“He tried to make a counter-offer,” The Puzzler said seriously.
“His answer to my riddle was not the one I had in mind.”
Frank leaned back against his desk in relief and let a little chuckle escape. “I see, I see. And what was the riddle?”
The Puzzler gave him an intense look and said, “I only ask riddles to those who will attempt to solve them. Are you saying you want to try to solve my riddle?”
“Oh sure, why not,” Frank grinned. “Lay it on me.”
“Very well. What is black and white and red all over?”
Frank thought for a second and shrugged. “I dunno, I give up. What is it?”
“Your newspaper,” said The Puzzler.
Frank digested the answer and then barked a laugh.
“Hah, I get it! ‘Red’ and ‘read’, that’s cute. Unfortunately, your answer’s a little off.” He turned and reached for his paper. “I pretty much only read the Sports section, so I don’t really read it ‘all over’. You might want to grglhurgl—” Frank’s comment was interrupted by The Puzzler’s knife slicing through his throat.
“I gave you Jimmy’s answer,” said The Puzzler. “I think it works better than mine.” He wiped his knife as Frank collapsed onto his desk. As The Puzzler left the room, Frank’s blood continued to leak from his throat, pooling onto the front page of his newspaper.
So my answer is "Frank's newspaper". :D
