    A 10 foot rope ladder hangs over the side of a boat with the bottom rung on the surface of the water. The rungs are one foot apart, and the tide goes up at the rate of 6 inches per hour. How long will it be until three rungs are covered? Rope ladders made out of rope and no rungs.

    A rooster laid an egg on top of the barn roof. Which way did it roll?
    Roosters don't lay eggs

    A truck driver is going down a one way street the wrong way, and passes at least ten cops. Why is he not caught?


    He is walking


    An electric train is moving north at 100mph and a wind is blowing to the west at 10mph. Which way does the smoke blow?
    Electric trains don't have smoke unless on fire.


    How much dirt is there in a hole 3 feet deep, 6 ft long and 4 ft wide?
    No dirt in holes.
    If it took eight men ten hours to build a wall,how long would it take four men to build it?
    It is already built.

    Good grief - it does not bear thinking about DM and OH in my guest house for the befuddled and bewildered - I'd be driven bats
    Mind you they could discuss ships and cruises all day and OH would have someone to look and oo and aaah at his 632892 photos of ships, boats, liners, cruises and seascapes

    In or out, the boat and whatever ladder would rise or fall with the tide but would always be at the same level above the water.
