For you regular diners who find yourself increasingly mentally sluggish and overweight (given the rich foods served up around here), I present some mental exercise.
1. What word is usually pronounced incorrectly?
2. What gets wetter and wetter the more it dries?
3. The man who invented it doesn't want it. The man who bought it doesn't need it. The man who needs it doesn't know it. What is it?
4. A certain crime is punishable if attempted, but not if committed. What is it?
5. You use a knife to slice my head, and weep beside me when I'm dead. What am I?
6. Pronounced as one letter,
And written with three,
Two letters there are,
And two only in me.
I'm double, I'm single,
I'm black, blue, and gray,
I'm read from both ends,
And the same either way.
What am I?
7. Why is it better to have round manhole covers than square?
8. A man marries twenty women in his village, but isn't charged with polygamy. Why?
9. Your sock drawer contains ten pairs of white socks and ten pairs of black socks. If you're only allowed to take one sock from the drawer at a time and you can't see what color sock you're taking until you've taken it, how many socks do you have to take before you're guaranteed to have at least one matching pair?
10. What's the largest amount of money you can have in change and still not have change for a dollar?
11. I have two U.S. coins that add up to fifty-five cents. One is not a nickel. What coins are they?
Have fun folks!
