Lateral Thinking

Today at Trendlewood we will be trying to solve some lateral thinking puzzles:

A woman parks her car outside a hotel and loses £2000. How come?

A man lives on the twelfth floor of a block of flats. Every morning he takes the lift down and leaves the building. In the evening, he gets into the lift, and, if there is someone else in the lift -- or if it was raining that day -- he goes back to his floor directly. Otherwise, he goes to the tenth floor and walks up two flights of stairs to his flat. Why?

Two men enter a bar. They are served identical drinks. One lives; the other dies.

There are two pieces of coal in a field full of daisies. How did they get there?

A man drives down the road at 29 miles per hour. Three cars pass him going at 35 miles per hour, but he gets stopped by a police officer and is given a ticket. Why?

A man leaves a full hotel, goes to his car, honks the horn, and returns. Why?

One of Charlotte's dearest loved ones binds her to a chair, but she doesn't mind. Why not?

A woman marries 20 men in one year. Why hasn't she been arrested?

A man is going to hospital with a fractured skull. He is accompanied on the journey by a badly bruised woman with an empty bucket. Why?

A woman presses number 7 and a man goes berserk. Why?

A bag of good nails is found on a rubbish heap. Why?

Happy Easter everybody.
