Here is a quick riddle:

The man who built it never used it;
The man who bought it sold it;
And the man who used it never knew it.

This is very bad wording. The second sentence doesn’t bear on the riddle.

Perhaps better might be:
—The man who made it sold it.
—The man who bought it never used it.
—The man who used it never knew it.

This is an old riddle, and the wording is correct.
