“What’s red, white, black and blue?"/"Uncle Sam falling down the stairs.”

An Uncle Sam riddle is:

Q: What’s red, white, black and blue?
A: Uncle Sam falling down the stairs.


“Red, white and blue” are the colors of the American flag and also the traditional dress of Uncle Sam. When he falls down the stairs, his body is “black and blue.” The Uncle Sam joke has been cited in print since at least 2011.
