The answer to last week’s challenge is Q: A man went to a party and drank some of the punch. He then left early. Everyone else at the party who drank the punch subsequently died of poisoning. Why did the man not die?

A: The poison in the punch came from the ice cubes. When the man drank the punch, the ice was fully frozen. Gradually it melted, poisoning the punch.

This week’s thinking challenge is …

Q: A man pushes his car up to a hotel and tells the owner he is bankrupt. What has happened?
