There are two bodies on the floor. They are surrounded by water and broken glass. How did they die?

The fish bowl got knocked over. The bodies were goldfish.
Enough Fish
Two fathers and two sons went fishing one day. They were there the whole day and only caught 3 fish. One father said, that is enough for all of us, we will have one each.

How can this be possible?

There was the father, his son, and his son’s son. This equals 2 fathers and 2 sons!
In His Pack
Two men are in a desert. They both have packs on. One of the guys is dead. The guy who is alive has his pack open, the guy who is dead has his pack closed. What is in the pack?

A parachute that didn’t open.
What Day
Alice is walking throught the forest of forgetfulness. She wants to know what day of the week it is. She stops and asks a lion and a unicorn. Now the lion lies all of the time on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The unicorn always lies on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Alice asks the lion what day it is, he says, “Well, yesterday was one of my lying days.” Alice can’t figure it out just from the lion’s answer so she asks the unicorn and the unicorn says, “Yesterday was also one of my lying days.”
What day is it?

Thursday.
Three Rose Bushes
There once was an evil wizard. He took 3 woman from their homes and turned them into rose bushes that looked exactly alike. He put them in his garden.

One of the woman had a husband and children and begged the wizard to let her see them.
He agreed. At night, he brought the woman to her house. In the morning he came and took her home.

One day the husband decided to go rescue her. So he snuck into the wizard’s garden.
He looked and looked at the 3 identical rose bushes trying to figure out which could be his wife. Suddenly, he knew the answer and he took his wife home.
How did he know which rose bush was his wife?

The wizard brought the rosebush to her home at night and returned her to the garden in the morning. Therefore, she was the only plant without dew.

Cannot Be Controlled
I can be created by humans,
But they cannot control me.
I suck on wood, paper and flesh alike.
I can be more of a hindrance than help at times.
To my creators, I seem to be everywhere at once.
What am I?

A baby.
Unnoticed
Almost everyone sees me without noticing me,
For what is beyond is what he or she seeks.
What am I?

A window.
I am the fountain from which no one can drink.
For many I am considered a necessary link.
Like gold to all I am sought for,
But my continued death brings wealth for all to want more.
What am I?

Oil.
Fly in the Air
I fly in the air,
But I am not always there.
I cannot be touched,
But I can be felt or held.
Think very hard,
But if you live near the equator,
You may have a tough time seeing me.
What am I?

Unreachable
I come in darkness, but fill the mind with light.
I bring enlightenment to some, while gripping others in the hand of fear.
With me it can be a journey of inexplicable joy and sorrow.
What I will show you will often be unreachable.
Journey with me and what you see may haunt you.
Journey with me and you may never want to return home.
Journey with me and you will never know when it will end.
What am I?

Cannot Be Seen
I’m so fast you can’t see me,
Though everyone sees straight through me,
I don’t stop until the day you die.
What am I?

Small and White
I am served at a table, In gatherings of two or four;
Served small, white and round.
You’ll love some, And that’s part of the fun.
What am I?

Ping Pong Balls.
Nine Pears Left
Ten pears hanging high,
Ten men come passing by,
Each took a pear and left nine hanging there.
How could that be?

EACH is the name of one of the men, and he’s the only one that took a pear.
Sharpshooting
A sharpshooter hung up his hat and put on a blindfold. He then walked 100 yards, turned around, and shot a bullet through his hat. The blindfold was a perfectly good one, completely blocking the man’s vision.
How did he manage this?

He hung is hat on the barrel of his gun.
A Strange Murder
A man was shot to death while in his car. There were no powder marks on his clothing, which indicated that the gunman was outside the car. However, all the windows were up and the doors locked. After a close inspection was made, the only bullet-holes discovered were on the man’s body.
How was he murdered?

The victim was in a convertible. He was shot when the top was down.
Impostor!
The king dies and two men, the true heir and an impostor, both claim to be his long-lost son. Both fit the description of the rightful heir: about the right age, height, coloring and general appearance. Finally, one of the elders proposes a test to identify the true heir. One man agrees to the test while the other flatly re-fuses. The one who agreed is immediately sent on his way, and the one who re-fused is correctly identified as the rightful heir.
Can you figure out why?

The test was a blood test. The elder remembered that the true prince was a hemophiliac.
Eight To Spare
I am one with eight to spare, lest I lose my one.
I’m not a number.
What am I?

A Cat. ( Nine Lives )
