i love these puzzles... here is mine for tonight!

There is a woman dressed in black, black shirt, black pants, black shoes, black socks, and a black hat. The street lights are off and there is a black car racing along. The woman crosses the street in front of the car and the car manages to stop in time, how did the car see her?

A man stood in front of an open window at the 20th floor of an office building in downtown Manhattan. He suddenly gets an urge and jumps through the window. He lands on his feet unhurt. He does not have a parachute, there are no mats or water, explain?

1 - A man walked into a bar, before he could say anything he was knocked cold, what happened?

He walks in and finds his wife dead. Inside are a postman, a doctor,

Here's a really old one.

A man walks into the jail and says he wants to visit an inmate. The guard informs him that only relatives are allowed to visit and asks the man how he is related to the man in jail.

The man replies, "Brothers and sisters, I have none; but that man's father is my father's son".

How are the two related?

A man lives on the twelfth floor of an apartment building. Every morning he takes the elevator down to the lobby and leaves the building. In the evening, he gets into the elevator, and, if there is someone else in the elevator -- or if it was raining that day -- he goes back to his floor directly. Otherwise, he goes to the tenth floor and walks up two flights of stairs to his apartment.

Here's one:

You go to a small town and need a haircut. There are 2 barbers in town-one has a good haircut and the other has a terrible haircut. Which barber do you go to? (Assuming you want a good haircut, that is. ;) ).

meb999
December 9th, 2006, 02:53 PM
you go to the barber with the BAD haircut because he's the one who did the other (good haircut) barber's hair. so since the good hair-barber has good hair...well you wanna go see the guy who did it....

hazelrunpack
December 9th, 2006, 02:55 PM

LOL :D

meb999
December 9th, 2006, 02:59 PM
the first one is because the guy is a little person, so he can go down the elevator no problem. But he can't reach the 12 button, so the only time he can go all the way up to his 12th floor is when someone else is in there to push the button for him or when he has an umbrella to push the button

:frustrated: but that doesn't make any sense. hospitals have back-up generators for situations like this!

i say the wife was at home and they lived in a high-rise :D

Anthony and Cleopatra are lying dead on the floor of a villa in Egypt. Nearby is a broken bowl. There is no mark on either of their bodies and they were not poisoned. How did they die?

They were very very old and sharing a bowl of popcorn. They both died of natural causes all at once, just after they finished the popcorn. When they fell, the bowl broke. Mice licked all the remaining crumbs and butter out of it.

There ya go. :D That's just gotta be right...I know it!

hazelrunpack
December 9th, 2006, 11:04 PM
hmmmm...wait a minute! This can't be true! I'm pretty sure that in real life, Tony and Cleo didn't die together! :eek:

A boy enters a room that is filled with adults. He is told by a man that the court has found that his parents have neglected & abused him, & he will be placed in foster care. However, the boy sleeps in the same house with his parents that night & several nights after that. No further mention is made of his move to foster care. Why?

December 9th, 2006, 11:22 PM
Because once again the system failed? :frustrated: sorry...haven't seen a lot of good things coming out of that particular dept for a while....

The man lied.

It was a kangaroo court?

He was playing a video game?

TeriM
December 10th, 2006, 12:28 AM
I thought that too but then it said no more mention made of his move.

Prin
December 10th, 2006, 12:30 AM
No because the man is an adult, so he's out of foster care... :o

How can you throw a ball as hard as you can and have it come right back to you? Keep in mind that the ball does not hit anything, there's nothing attached to it and no one else catches it and throws it back.
