The person who made it doesn't need it.

The person who bought it doesn't want it.

The person who uses it can't see it.

Those were neat! I had heard some before, but surprisingly, I got quite a few of the others without too much trouble.

I heard the first one when I was about 13 and no one in the class got it.

How about this one:

Sherlock Holmes dies and goes to Heaven. While there, he notices that EVERYONE is stark naked (for those who are religious, nekkid as God intended ). He looks around for a bit and notices a young couple standing under a street lamp. He approaches them and says, "You must be Adam and Eve." They looked at him and asked, "Yes, but how did you know?"

So, how did Sherlock Holmes know it was Adam and Eve?

Hahaha I was totally reading into the riddle the wrong way... I was trying to fathom reasons why standing under the streetlamp would indicate that they were Adam and Eve!

Here is one I liked:

What is greater than G-d,
more evil than the devil,
the poor have it,
the rich don't need it,
and if you eat it, you'll die?

If you haven't heard this one before, this is a riddle that most kindegardeners will get correct, but many adults fail to figure out!
