A man is sitting in a pub feeling rather poor. He sees the man next to him pull a wad of $50 bills out of his wallet.
He turns to the rich man and says to him,
"I have an amazing talent: I know almost every song that has ever existed."
The rich man laughs.
The poor man says, "I am willing to bet you all the money you have in your wallet that I can sing a genuine song with a lady's name of your choice in it."
The rich man laughs again and says, "Ok how about my daughters name, Joanna Armstrong-Miller."
The rich man goes home poor. The poor man goes home rich.

What song did he sing?

OH man !! (slaps forehead !!)

Ok, the sticker bum one. Is that another riddle? Are we supposed to guess what comes next. The obvious would be :

sticker sticker sticker sticker, bum bum bum bum

So I'm certain that's not it. OK, how about just a hint. Or can you tell us if it's a sequence or something else.

Alright I have one. A man leaves his apartment every morning for work. He takes the elevator directly to the lobby and hails a cab.

When he returns home he gets on the elevator and begins to ride up. If he is alone he gets out on the 5th floor and takes the stairs the rest of the way. If he has a companion on the elevator he rides it to his floor.

You may ask yes or no questions only. However, I think that this is too easy compared to the others and I doubt that there will be any questions.

PS--even after raingirls answer I had to puzzle out the roman numeral one. Sheesh !! Can you believe I was ever responsible for the intellectual development of other humans.:rolleyes:

You forgot: He rides all the way up when it rains, because he can use the umbrella to poke the buttons. Why? He's short. :thumbs up

Raingirl is correct on the Roman Numerals. For those of you who are puzzled as to why it is so, here's the reason:

The last name has eight letters (NUMERALS) while the first or given name has five (ROMAN). Using each of the numerals once gives MDCLXVI (1000, 500, 100, 50, 10, 5, and 1 respectively), which is 1,666. C ( which is found in Cow) is first of the seven in the alphabet while X ( which is found in oXen) is last. Three of seven are found in DaMseL. Three are also found in VIXen.

and this:

There are 5 houses in 5 different colours. In each house lives a person of a different nationality. The 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet. Using the clues below can you determine who owns the fish?

The Brit lives in a red house.
The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
The Dane drinks tea.
The green house is on the immediate left of the white house.
The green house owner drinks coffee.
The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
The man living in the house right in the middle drinks milk.
The Norwegian lives in the first house.
The man who smokes Blend lives next door to the one who keeps cats.
The man who keeps horses lives next door to the man who smokes Dunhill.
The owner who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
The German smokes Prince.
The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
The man who smokes Blend has a neighbour who drinks water.

A person is in a room with 3 lights. They are currently turned off. The light switches are all off and in a different room. The person cannot see the lights from the room with the switches. By going into the switch room once, how can the person determine which switch goes with which light?

Turn on 1 light and after 5 min turn it off. Turn on a different light and immediately run to the other room.

The light you just turned on is...well...the light you just turned on.
The one with the warm light bulb is the one you turned on for 5 min.
The last one is trivial...:D

He had a stroke and lost consciouness?? :confused:

Raingirl: does have something to do with what he heard on the radio? Something along the lines of a natural disaster or meteorite? And the host is signing off to go seek shelter and so the driver decides to take his own life rather than get killed by whatever it is coming his way?
