Friday Funny Septermber 27, 2019 A Quick and Easy Quiz

Happy Friday and Happy Fall!  Let’s kick off this Friday with some mental calisthenics.

Enjoy!

Ten quick questions to get your brain working and kick start your Friday.  You should be able to answer these quickly. No pencil or paper required! Time to prove that you are the sharpest pencil in the box!  Good Luck!

First Question:  If you spell “sit in the tub” s-o-a-k, and you spell “a funny story” j-o-k-e, how do you spell “the white of an egg”?

 

a-l-b-u-m-e-n or e-g-g w-h-i-t-e – hopefully this question did not leave you with y-o-k-e on your face. Get back on track with number two! 

 

Second Question: You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?

 

If your answer is that you are first, that would be incorrect. If you overtake the second person, you are now in second place!  Maybe you should get some more coffee before going further.

 

Third Question: What word would you use to describe a man who does not have all his fingers on one hand?

 

Given that people usually have half their fingers on each hand, I think normal would be a good word,

 

Fourth Question: Before Mount Everest was discovered, what was the highest mountain in the world?

 

Wouldn’t Mount Everest still have been the highest mountain in the world even though it had not been discovered?

 

Fifth Question: How much dirt is there in a hole three feet deep, six feet long and four feet wide?

 

If there was any dirt in it, would it still be a hole?  The good news is that you have halfway through.

 

SIXTH QUESTION: You are participating in a race. If you overtake the last person, what place are you in?

 

If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. How can you overtake the LAST person? Perhaps your brain has started the weekend a little early this week?

 

Seventh Question: If you have twelve fish and half of them drown, how many remain?

 

Twelve – they are FISH – how could they drown??

 

Eighth Question:  Math alert!!  Do this in your head!  Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator.  

Take 1000 and add 40 to it.

Now add another 1000.

Now add 30.

Add another 1000.

Now add 20.

Now add another 1000.

Now add 10.

What is the total?

 

Did you get 5000? That is nice and incorrect! The correct answer is actually 4100. Do not take my word for it – get that calculator out and check.  Two more to go – finish strong! 

 

Ninth Question: If an electric train is moving north at 80 mph and the wind is blowing to the west at a steady 15 mph, which direction does the smoke blow?

 

Given that it is an ELECTRIC train, there will be no smoke.  One more chance.

 

Tenth and Last Question: Mary’s father has five daughters: Nana, Nene, Nini, Nono.  What is the name of the fifth daughter?

 

Nunu? Nana? Nene? NO! NO! NO! The fifth daughter’s name
is Mary. Read the question again.

Now that your brain is limbered up and ready to go – have a great weekend!

Thought for the Week

“Our veterans left everything they knew and loved and served with exemplary dedication and courage so we could all know a safer America and a more just world. They have been tested in ways the rest of us may never fully understand…. On Veterans Day, and every day, let us show them the extraordinary gratitude they so rightly deserve…” ~Barack Obama, 2015 November 5th, quoted from The White House Office of the Press Secretary
