Time To Think At My Rink!

So the cat is here to make you think, warning it may bring you to the brink. Yep, even more than usual at my sea, as in rhyme I am going to brain tease thee.

Take 9 from 6, 10 from 9,
50 from 40 and leave 6.
How come asks the feline,
No, there isn't any tricks.

The sign reads $1 for 1,
$2 for 10 and $3 for 100 in view.
I needed 924 and only paid 3 bucks when done.
How did such a thing ensue?

When can you add 2 to 11 and the right answer is one?
This is an easy run.
Have to give you a break.
Ready to drown yourself in a lake?

If you were running a race,
And you passed the person in second place,
What place would you now embrace?
Don't make a funny face.

A clerk in a butcher shop is 6 foot two.
He has size 14 sneakers on as well.
What does he weigh at his zoo?
Ready to damn me to hell?

Did you know that in Timbuktu,
You can't take a picture of a man with a wooden leg?
Why can't this come due?
Round hole, square peg?

Before Mt. Everest was found,
What was the highest mountain on Earth?
Let that brain roll around,
Did an answer give birth?

How much dirt is in a hole,
The measures two feet by three feet by two feet?
Did you give another eye roll?
Don't fidget around in your seat.

What word in the English language you humans created,
Is always spelled incorrectly?
Is your brain elated?
Feel free to contact someone directly.

What 5 letter word becomes shorter when you add two letters to it?
Are you confused a bit?
You have to get one.
Never fear, now we are done.

So how many did you get right here at my site? Is your brain in overload? I enjoyed the teasing mode. #1 was the only one the cat couldn't get without looking at the answer to it. Can you top my wit? Good luck class with topping my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

    2. They almost all include numbers and require thinking to come up with an answer. That makes them mathesque, or mathervescent.

    and I'm too tired to give them another view..
    but, here is a riddle just for you..hhaha
    What am I?

    Down below the shining moon
    Around the trees, a sacred gloom
    Running with the midnight sky
    Knowing the thing that makes you cry
    Night is full with my essence
    Eternal light betrays my presence
    Soaring through my endless task
    Shadows are my faithful mask
