A joke begins with a statement, while a riddle starts with a question.

The “Wild Animal Funnies” Spotlight Project in “Animal Antics” theme includes more information and examples of using jokes and riddles to convey facts in humorous ways.

Baked Beans Down Under (riddle), by Patricia Carmichael

Why have all the baked beans moved to Queensland?

Because they like to live in Cairns!

Note: This is a play on words because the well-known town of Cairns on the Gold Coast in Queensland is pronounced the same way as cans (tins).
