Two sentries were on duty outside a barracks. Onefaced up the road to watch for anyone approaching from the North. The other looked down the road to see if anyone approached from the South. Suddenly one of them said to the other, "Why are you smiling?" How did he know that his companion was smiling?
Of no use to one
Yet absolute bliss to two.
The small boy gets it for nothing.
The young man has to lie for it.
The old man has to buy it.
The baby’s right,
The lover’s privilege,
The hypocrite’s mask.
To the young girl, faith;
To the married woman, hope;
To the old maid, charity.
What am I?
Twogirls ate dinner together. They both ordered iced tea.
Onegirl drank them very fast and finished 5 of them while the second girl finished just one.
The girl who drank one died while the other survived.
All the drinks were poisoned.
How did the girl who drank the most survive?
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?
Susan uses a toaster that has 2 slots. The toaster toasts one side of each piece of bread at a time, and it takes exactly 1 minute to do so.
If Susan wants to make three pieces of toast, what is the LEAST amount of time she needs to toast them on both sides?
She puts two pieces in the toaster, toasting one side of each. Then she flips one of them, takes one out, and puts the completely untoasted piece into the toaster. Finally, she takes out the toasted piece and puts the two half-toasted pieces of bread into the toaster for a minute and she's done.
