one or thirteen depending on which half of the day the 10 o'clock and 9 o'clock are.

How far can you walk into the woods?

1/2 way, then you are walking out.


if a daddy bull eats 2 bales of hay and a baby bull eats 1 bale of hay, how much does a mommy bull eat?

nothing, there's no such thing as a mommy bull, all bulls are male.

This isn't quite a joke but it's still pretty good as a tricky question. 

Which US President was a King before becoming President?

The unlikely answer is, 'Gerald Ford'.  Young Gerry was adopted by the Fords.  The surname of his birth mother was King.

This one only works if spoken aloud:

A farmer has 20 sick sheep. 2 die. How many sheep does he still have?

Ok, can you explain this one to the dumb person? I don't get it.

Here's one that my brother stumped me with as a kid:

You are faced with two doors leading to either heaven or hell, both of which have a guard in front of them.  The doors are identical, as are the guards.  You are allowed to ask one question, of one guard.  The only thing you know is that one of them is bound to tell the truth, and the other is bound to tell a lie.  What is your question?

I think I remember this one - you ask either if the guard is lying or if they're telling the truth...can't quite remember which.

I remember this one, and I learned the answer from watching Doctor Who!  You ask either one of the guards what the other guard will say if asked which is the door to heaven, then choose the opposite door.  If you've asked the Truth guard, he'll give you the door to hell, because that's what the Lying guard would tell you.  If you've asked the Lying guard, he'll also give you the door to hell, because that's not what the Truth guard would tell you.  Who says television isn't educational?   ;)

My brain: "He has 20. Dead sheep are still sheep."  :P

When I was little (2nd or 3rd grade?) my dad asked me "When was The War of 1812?" I remember saying "I dunno. We haven't learned that yet!" He thought that was sooo funny but I got really mad. lol
