Bossy y u be so good at riddles? D:

Third time is the charm. I'm going to stump this meal deal with anger management.

Same rules. He gets one shot at the riddle. He gets it he wins. He doesn't and I win.

The riddle is this:

There is a man dead in a locked office, sitting at his desk. On the desk there are a couple of pieces of blank paper, a pen and a sealed envelope. The office is locked from the inside. No-one has directly killed him. How was he killed?

"There is a man dead in a locked office, sitting at his desk. On the desk there are a couple of pieces of blank paper, a pen and a sealed envelope. The office is locked from the inside. No-one has directly killed him. How was he killed?"
So there's paper an envelope and a pen. The office was locked. Was it his? Hmmm...well, we can assume that he was writing letters. He didn't hang himself since he was sitting. A heart attack would be too convenient. No one killed him DIRECTLY... Odd wording... Definition=Synonyms
adverb. straight - immediately - direct - right - outright
conjunction. immediately - once - as soon as

So did he get murdered indirectly? Hmmm... The envelope is also specifically sealed...
He was able to write a letter before he died. The papers are blank, so he didn't die while writing. Where am I going with this???? Holy fvck. What the hell is the answerrrr???

So he died after he wrote a letter and before he started a new one. Did he die when putting the letter in the envelope? No, because it was sealed. Did he die while he was sealing it? Was he gassed of something? Was he poisoned? I have no fvcking clue. Wait-bear with me- you lick an envelope to seal it, right? What if that was poisoned????

Holy crapoli, did I get it?

Was the envelope horse glue poisoned???

I think at this point the only way I'm going to beat this mexican dish is if I go to Taco Bell and eat him.

He wins again. The envelope glue was poisoned.

The thing about riddles is that they always point to a few items/things of interest. They MUST have to do with the riddle in some way.

News of the Weird had an article about a man who lived almost entirely on beans and cabbage. His bedroom was nearly air tight. He killed himself by farting. I suppose this could be the answer to this riddle, but so could cosmic rays.
