A Biblical Thought

Strange Death
A man and a woman were driving in their car when it broke down. The man decided to go for help at a gas station a few miles back. He made sure nobody was in the car, rolled all the windows up, and locked all of the sedan’s doors. He went off, but when he came back, his wife was dead, and there was a stranger in the car. No physical damage was done to the car, so how did the stranger get in?

The stranger was a baby and the woman died in childbirth.

What are we?
We are little creatures;
all of us have different features.
One of us in glass is set;
one of us you’ll find in jet.
Another you may see in tin,
and the fourth is boxed within .
If the fifth you should pursue,
it can never fly from you.
What are we?

We are vowels.

Presidential Ties
The 22nd and 24th presidents of the United States of America had the same parents, but were not brothers. How can this be possible?

States, but the terms were not consecutive.
More Word Play
