The maker does not use it, the buyer does not use it and the user uses it without knowing. What is it?

This is the third time someone has said this riddle. It's a grave.

Akuma: You are incorrect. My riddle refers to something very specific, a joke between some of the Ahtonauts. The foreplayers are ED and Jae.

Umm...... considering your liking for the Inheritance trilogy...... the first Eragon?

Knowing you a little, you're talking about yourself or somekind of fish-food

Right...my turn

A bandit decides to rob a castle. He disguises himself as an musician, and hides in the bushes near the gate. Why? Because he doesn't know the secret word which will get him past the guard. So he observes what the other people say:

A knight and his horse ride towards the gate.
Guard: "Are you in a hurry, brave Knight?"
Knight: "Yes. I have to brief the king about the upcoming war."
Guard: "Twelve."
Knight: "Six."
And the guard lets the knight pass.

The bandit laughs. He just has to split the answer in two! To be on the safe side, he waits once more.

An old women with a sack full of bread approaches the gate.
Guard: "Heya Mary. You got some nice fresh breads there."
Mary: "Thank you. I'm off to the market to sell them."
Guard: "Six"
Mary: "Three"

The bandit knows how it works now. He approaches the gate.
Bandit: "Hello there, Guard. May I pass?"
The guard is suspicious. He still gives a number though.
Guard: "Eight"
Bandit: "Four"
The guard pulls his sword out and arrests the bandit.

What did he do wrong?

Let's see how you handle the next ones then

The one Free-Man
A poor Chinese farmer is convicted to the death penalty by a judge. The judge grants him one last sentence, so he can choose how he wants to die. The over-arrogant judge however, adds something:
"If you lie, you will be hung, and if you speak the truth, you will be decapacitated."
The farmer speaks. He walks out of the courtroom 5 minutes later, free to go, because the judge couldn't determine his punishment.
What did the poor farmer say?

Impossible Line!
Make the following sum correct by adding 1 line.

5 + 5 + 5 =550

No, if you are answering it Boba Rhett. It refers to a joke that is mentioned by ED and Jae.

3.What is boiled then cooled, sweetened then soured?
4.. A woman gives a beggar 50 cents; the woman is the beggar's sister, but the beggar is not the woman's brother. How come?

I will have to go with what Boba Rhett said for Ztalker's one, since I can't come up with another answer.

My feet are warm; my head is cold. I never move since I'm so old.

@Darth Saruman:
1. Anakin Skywalker?
2. All of them, just most have more than 28?
3. Pickles?
4. The beggar is not the woman's sister because the beggar is a girl making them sisters to each other.


Yes
