The answer to last week’s challenge is. Q: What is the smallest number of people you need to assemble two Uncles and two Nephews in the same place?

A: Two. If two men marry each other’s mothers, they automatically become half-brothers. So, if they have one son each, then the other one’s son is automatically Nephew and Uncle.

This week’s lateral thinking challenge is.

Q: Why is it against the law for a man living in Queensland to be buried in Victoria?

The answer along with a new lateral challenge will appear next week.

Have a good weekend!
