Blonde (Bl): “You think you are Soo smart but you don’t know anything.”
Me: “Come again-.”
Bl: (interrupting) “I know you can’t answer this riddle, no body has answered it correctly.”
Me: “Can I -?”
Bl: (interrupting) “I bet ten dollars you can’t answer it in ten minutes, and twenty more that you can’t answer it at all.”
Me: (fishing lunch money out of pockets) “Okay, let me chec-”
Bl: (clutching at my money) “The Riddle is this:”
Bl: (forgetting the money) “There is an accident and a man and his boy are taken to hospital in critical condition. The man is dead, the boy taken to hospital. The emergency doctor is called in. The doctor meets the ambulance attendant. The doctor takes one look at the boy and turns to the attendant and says ‘I cannot operate on this boy, he is my son.’ The doctor then apologizes to the dead man.”
Bl: (very smugly) “How is this possible?”
At the last school I attended I had to apologize for laughing and promised to explain it to the librarian later.
I should go do that now that I think of it. I still have to laugh when ever this riddle is posed, and my favorite libarian thought that I was laughing at her trying to figure it out.
EDIT: Whe the hiello IS COopUPLE sensored?
