Mental Floss 217

The answer to last week’s challenge is, Q: A famous old riddle this week – A man without eyes saw plums on a tree. He did not take plums and he did not leave plums. How could this be?

A: The answer lies in the use of plurals. He did not have eyes, he had one eye. He saw two plums on the tree. He took one and left one, so he did not take or leave plums. 

This week’s challenge is:

Q: One day the boss bragged to his employees that he could “fight and beat any man who works here”! A new employee, a 7 foot ex-boxer stood up to take the boss on. What lateral approach did the boss take in this situation.

The answer along with a new challenge, next week.

Have an excellent weekend!
