A long time ago, someone told me this riddle that I never got the answer to. And seeing how I'm no longer friends with that person I don't think I ever will know the answer but you all can guess. So here's the riddle: 

You have a fish...  You have a box...  You put the fish inside the box, you close the box...  Where's the fish?

Depends. If you used a bowl of water with the fish (which would be logical unless it's dead), then the fish would be in the water, which is inside the bowl, which is in the box, and a box with a closed lid contains the dark. The dark contains..well, just the dark. There could be more than one answer so I'm guessing the 'riddler' keeps asking you until you cover all the possibilities. If none of these answers are right, you've been trollololololed.

In heaven. There is no water in the box which means the fish is dead!

Perhaps having a fish means you ate it.

The rest is just a description of what you do with your fish box.

The answer could be in your belly.

The answer to the riddle is (i know im 4 years too late) you have to answer the question in a question such as: "the fish is in the box, right?"

The purpose of the riddle is to infuriate people. Stoo ultimately everyone here is wrong. I know the answer because a friend told more this riddle too and gave me the answer.

@dat_ashdoh: So, the guy that just told me this riddle said there is no answer because when you try to answer, and they say "listen"... You listen to nothing.

The answer (I finally found it) is "In the fish bowl". I guess we're supposed to assume it's a live fish and we're not just holding a dead one. Who knew? Well...SexyMerc did since he was essentially correct.

Mentally it is in the box(You think it’s there), and unless this is a trick with a portal or another way to get rid of the fish(Like a shredder or hole), it is still there physically.
