And when you are asked this question next, say ‘a Grave-maker,’ the houses he makes last till doomsday.

The first clown thinks he’s so smart – like this is the most brilliant riddle but…gravemakers don’t really “build” do they? I think there are a lot of fallacies in this riddle. The second clown’s answer is actually better. Because a gallows is built. A grave is dug. It is more an act of destruction than construction.
