Can you remember those comical and more often than not corny childhood riddles?

I love them and the cornier the better. Delve into your past and try to pull out your best riddle. 

Post the answer to the riddle, then ask a new riddle.

Correct answers are not required, so be creative! 

I will begin :

Q.  What is black and white and red all over? 

What am I?
