Inspired by another thread, I have a riddle for the masses.

He who owns it wants to sell it.
He who needs it doesn't want it.
He who has it doesn't know it.

What is it?

Correct, the answer is a casket. You got the answer before I could put up a prize of a bronze membership to the person who gets the correct answer.


Sorry.

Corn on the cob

ETA corn is actually a grain although most consider it a veggie.

I never was, am always to be,
No one ever saw me, nor ever will,
And yet I am the confidence of all
To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball.
What am I?

My life can be measured in hours;
I serve by being devoured.
Thin, I am quick; fat, I am slow.
Wind is my foe.
What am I?

Whoever makes it, tells it not. Whoever takes it, knows it not. Whoever knows it, wants it not. What is it?
