    OK, a simple one from a simple mind:

    the police get an anonimous tip off that the murderer they are after is
    at a specific house. They raid the house and find 4 people playing
    poker - a chef, a surgeon, a fireman and a polititian. They knew
    nothing about the man they wanted except that he would be in the
    house, but they knew instantly who to arrest. How?

    (and it wasn't because the murderer had used poisoned cup cakes
    that were otherwise very tasty..)

    bingo - told you it wasn't hard. Some people get stuck until you
    change the professions eg. to teacher, nurse, cleaner & stuntman, and
    then they get it - just shows our subconsious steriotypes.
