• Is the second line referring to a Zbanepu Ohggresyl? Jun 4, 2018 at 16:30
• @Joe-You-Know No, it's not Jun 4, 2018 at 16:33
• Could this maybe need the knowledge tag, if it potentially has to do with movies, TV shows, etc.? Jun 4, 2018 at 16:41
• no, in fact this is something lots of Puzzle SE viewers know about :) It's right up their alley, after all. Jun 4, 2018 at 16:42
• Just a thought, is the second line related to a rot13(orr uvir)? Thanks. Jun 4, 2018 at 18:49

I can find them all in

A joke/riddle Each of the answers refers to a part of a classic lateral thinking puzzle, as explained here

A deadly river (but not today)

Q: You need to cross a river but it is inhabited by crocodiles. You don’t have a boat but you do have a refrigerator. What should you do? A Swim across, as the crocodiles are all at the lion's conference.

A monarchy ran by animals

Q: The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All of the animals attend, except for one. Which animal does not attend? A: The elephant in the refrigerator

A giant kitchen appliance

Q: How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator? A: Open the door, put in the giraffe, and close the door. Q: How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator? A: Open the door, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant, and close the door.

• That’s a bingo! Jun 4, 2018 at 21:28
• The answers should probably be in reverse order though. Jun 5, 2018 at 13:13
• It appears that this puzzle has a significant requirement on prior knowledge / trivia. :/ Jun 5, 2018 at 14:19

I can find them on

Amazon

which is

Amazon river, Amazon rainforest, and Amazon.com

• You beat me to it. +1 Jun 4, 2018 at 16:20
• well, why should the Amazon river not deadly today? Wrong answer :) Jun 4, 2018 at 16:22
• how is that a kitchen appliance? Jun 4, 2018 at 20:47
• @Jordan.J.D It doesn't say "is", it says "where", and Amazon.com could certainly allow you to purchase a large kitchen appliance. Jun 5, 2018 at 15:19

Probably

in disney films

A deadly river (but not today)

in hercules

A monarchy ran by animals

in the lion king

A giant kitchen appliance

in mickey and the beanstalk

• Wrong :) Again, why should the river not deadly today? Jun 4, 2018 at 17:52
• because rot13(va gur svyz urephyrf qvq abg qvr rira vs ur qvirq va gur fglk gb trg Zrt onpx) Jun 4, 2018 at 17:56
• Well, you should also be able cross the river in the riddle too ;) also, a big hint: all three questions refer to one connected world. Jun 4, 2018 at 18:02
• Also, one of your answers accidentally was the correct one :) figure out which one is it and go from there Jun 4, 2018 at 19:01

It's a stretch but:

Deschutes County, OR

A deadly river (but not today)

Lava River Cave Located in Deschutes, once this cave was deadly but not today.

A monarchy ran by animals

Possibly Lions Lake, related to how Lions are kings.

A giant kitchen appliance

Newberry Volcano, A volcano (Giant stove?)

• You got the lion correct :) But no, this is not the answer, for the river is usually deadly but not deadly today. Jun 4, 2018 at 19:40

This is a shot in the dark here, but are they all in

The Pride Lands from The Lion King?

I'm sure my responses are wrong here, but here it goes:

A deadly river (but not today)

Is this referring to the watering hole where Simba sings, "Oh I just can't to be King" and Zazu is almost killed? Or perhaps the Elephant Graveyard?

A monarchy ran by animals

The kingdom is run by Lions

A giant kitchen appliance

Is this referencing Pride Rock, which may resemble a giant can opener?

Hint:

All three statements refer to a connected world. These are all in the same workd

one of the answers accidentally got the right idea for the second line actually, which refers to Kant1's answer that a monarchy ran by animals was referring to the lion king.

• Hmm, good guess, but notice how the riddle is tagged 'lateral-thinking' ? Also, quite a reach with your third statement there :) Jun 4, 2018 at 19:53
• I thought that was a pretty lateral way of thinking with the last clue. Jun 4, 2018 at 19:54

A deadly river (but not today)

Lake Albert (it is dried up now)

A monarchy ran by animals

Lion's Lake - from Gustavo Gabriel

A giant kitchen appliance

Possibly mount hood, as in a kitchen range hood
