    You can ask yes-or-no questions for this one, it was made to be like this.

    Jack and Jill were found dead in a puddle of water with broken glass surrounding them, and in the puddles.
    How did Jack and Jill die?

    Is the glass and water a broken goldfish bowl?
    ( Are Jack and Jill dead goldfish? )

    Handy's first question was a big clue.

    The answer to your question is suffocation.

    Better version is Antony & Cleopatra found dead in similar circumstances
    (they too are goldfish) with Caesar leaving the room ( a cat)

    Caesar would have eaten the carcasses.

    I've heard lot's of these type of things over the years.
    People in lifts, a really involved one about someone receiving a strange package by post and numerous others, most of which I've forgotten!!
    We even made some of our own up whilst sitting in the pub.
    We also had a protocol which was the person setting the conundrum could only answer the questions "yes" no" or "irrelevant"
    They all involve what these days is called "thinking out of the box".
    The best one I can remember is this:-
    A man's car stops outside a hotel.
    He realises immediately he is now bankrupt.
    Explain.

    Big clue there.
    You've obviously seen it and know the answer
