• Every Minute, Every Moment

    What occurs once in every minute, twice in every moment, yet never in a thousand years?


    The letter \’M\’. 🙂
  • The Poor Farmer

    A poor farmer went to the market to sell some peas and lentils. However, as he had only one sack and didn\’t want to mix peas and lentils, he poured in the peas first, tied the sack in the middle, and then filled the top portion of the sack with the lentils. At the market a rich innkeeper happened by with his own sack. He wanted to buy the peas, but he did not want the lentils.
    Pouring the seed anywhere else but the sacks is considered soiling. Trading sacks is not allowed. The farmer can\’t cut a hole in his sack.
    How would you transfer the peas to the innkeeper\’s sack, which he wants to keep, without soiling the produce?


    Pour the lentils into the innkeeper\’s sack, bind it and turn inside out. Pour in the peas. Then unbind the sack a pour the lentils back to your sack.
  • Strongest Man

    What is light as a feather, but even the strongest man cannot hold it more than a few minutes?


    His breath.
  • Trees In The Garden

    There are a few trees in a garden. On one of them, a pear tree, there are pears (quite logical). But after a strong wind blew, there were neither pears on the tree nor on the ground.

    How come?


    At first, there were 2 pears on the tree. After the wind blew, one pear fell on the ground. So there where no pears on the tree and there were no pears on the ground.
  • The Apple Basket

    A basket contains 5 apples. Do you know how to divide them among 5 kids so that each one has an apple and one apple stays in the basket?


    4 kids get an apple (one apple for each one of them) and the fifth kid gets an apple with the basket still containing the apple.
