Easy one.

There are six eggs in the basket. Six people each take one of the eggs. How can it be that one egg is left in the basket?

You are driving down the road in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop and you see three people waiting for the bus

An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
An old friend who once saved your life.
The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.

Knowing that there can only be one passenger in your car, whom would you choose?

Andy, I let the old friend drive the old lady home, and I huddle with Mr Perfect until the bus comes ;-)

How could a baby fall out of a twenty-story building onto the ground and live?


Andrew Report 7 Apr 2013 22:57

Absolutely right Rose!

lol Andy well I didn't know if it was the 'right' answer but it seemed the most sensible one :-)

MR_MAGOO Report 7 Apr 2013 23:09
