    Well now, lets see: Take the'meat' off the bat, the 'stuffing' from the mattress along with the 'dates' from the calendar and that's plenty to survive on. Who said anything about trying to get out ??

    So your proposed solution contradicts information given in the problem statement.

    You get a big fat FAIL!

    I suppose, but how long do you expect to survive without water?

    You disturb the bat. They are a protected species and some moron from the council will soon turn up,

    Longevity of survival was never a factor in the original situational statement.

    I still win. Meh.

    It's usually a calendar, mattress and piano:

    Use the dates from the calendar to eat, the springs from the bed to drink and the keys from the piano to get out.

    No idea how you get keys from a bat though...

    What if you're stuck with one of those crappy foam mattresses or a fancy tempurpedic one?
