Mental Floss 35







The answer to last week’s challenge is. Q: At a family reunion one man went up to another. “Father”! “Grandad”? replied the other. Neither was mistaken. Please explain …

A: The Grandson was a Priest.

This week’s lateral thinking challenge is.

Q: A footballer bets you that they can kick a ball a certain distance, have it stop and then come directly back to him without anything or anyone else touching the ball. Can he do it and how?

Have a good weekend …
