On The Construction Site

Two men working at a construction site were up for a challenge, and they were pretty mad at each other. Finally, at lunch break, they confronted one another. One man, obviously stronger, said “See that wheelbarrow? I’m willin’ to bet $100 (that’s all I have in my wallet here) that anything you can wheel to that cone and back, I can wheel twice as far. Do we have a bet?”

The other man, too dignified to decline, shook his hand, but he had a plan formulating. He looked at the objects lying around: a pile of 400 bricks, a steel beam, the 10 men that had gathered around to watch, and a stack of ten bags of concrete mix; he thought for a while, and then finalized his plan.

“All right,” he said, and revealed his object.

That night, the strong man went home thoroughly teased and $100 poorer.

What was the weaker man’s object?

He looked the strong man right in the eye and said, “you get in.” 🙂

The Man With The Gun

A man walks into his back yard in the middle of the night and fires a gun. Due to his strange behavior he never sees another sunrise. (No, he did not kill himself.)

Can you explain this odd occurrence?

The man shot his rooster, which had awakened him with its crowing every morning for the past ten years. Since he had recently retired, there was no longer any reason to be wakened at such an early hour.
