Better way to answer riddles?

I know we have the "hide" functionality on the website, but most of the users when going trough a riddle that already has an answer will probably highlight the text to see the answer.
 
Can we do something about this? Probably will increase interaction for all riddles.

Some people are average, some are just mean.

What would be the alternative?
Not hiding the answer would be worse. And not allowing answers would stop interaction altogether.

I'm not sure yet what would be the best alternative. But how can someone else (besides the guy/girl who answered correctly) could answer a riddle?

You can answer the riddle before reading the replies, as some do. Or find an alternative answer.

Most of the time, this poses a greater challenge than the original riddle.
