Violent Wife?Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.
The dinner guests watched in horror as Susan broke both of her husband's arms with a swing of a baseball bat. Afterwards she got praise from everyone, including her husband.
What happened here?
HintThe wife really did break her actual husband's arms.
AnswerThe husband had grabbed a faulty electrical appliance and was being electrocuted. Unable to touch him or the appliance without getting electrocuted herself, Susan got a baseball bat and hit her husband's arms, freeing them. She unfortunately broke them in the process, but saved her husband's life.
The dinner guests were "in horror" because of the electrocution, not the swinging of the bat.
