How about this one?

A boy went to a funfair. At one of the booths, a man said to the boy, "If I write your exact weight on this piece of paper then you have to give me R200; but if I cannot, I will pay you R200."

The boy looked around and saw no scale, so he agreed, thinking no matter what the man wrote on the paper, he could just say that he weighs more or less than that amount!

But the man was too clever for the boy and, in the end, the boy ended up paying the man R200. How did the man win the bet?

These things are always more obvious than we think. Tip: Look carefully at the wording.

Let's see...

A man and his son drives down the road.
They are involved in an accident.
The man dies on impact.
The son is rushed to the hospital for an emergency operation.
The surgeon walks into the theatre, turns around and says
"I cannot operate, that is my son."

All are blood family. :huh:

Yup! Funny how many people, including women, simply cannot get their head around to think in that direction.

'nother one.

You have a hole in the ground of arbitrary (considerable) depth, but just big/wide enough such that a table-tennis ball drops in. Without damaging the ball, how do you get it out?
