    Here's a cool puzzle:

    Two fathers and two sons go hunting in the woods.

    They each shot and killed a turkey.

    When they got home, they only had three turkeys.

    What happened?

    And no, they didn't lose one in the woods.

    You can ask yes or no questions until you get to the right answer. (There is only one logical answer.)



    I'm sure people have heard this before, so please, no early spoilers.

    I got the answer in about 10 seconds. Still, it's pretty cool.

    Yeah, me too. Once you've seen one riddle with this theme it's hard not to know the trick when you see it again.

    Hmm... took me like a half hour.

    I had never seen a puzzle like this before though.

    I think I've seen something like this before maybe? I thought of the answer almost immediately.

    Yes a golden oldie with many variations.

    (You could have used it in a chess setting.)

    Two fathers and two sons all play for the same 4 man chess team.
    The fathers and sons won all their games but their team only scored 3 pts - how?

    If you need a clue... User 121774...but only look if you are stuck.

    Good Post.

    A carpenter takes his son to the hospital. The surgeon refuses to do surgery, and requests to be replaced, explaining, "It's my son." How can this be?

    The surgeon is the boys mother.

    Or the carpenter is his mother and the surgeon his father

    He, a nice puzzle. Not too difficult but still funny.

    Two fathers and two sons went to the local theatre. They bought three tickets and all of them entered and had a great show. How was this possible?

    Aw, you know the answer by now!
