The Body BagSituation 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.
Mary and Mitch had been going out for about one week when she found it. Mitch was driving her home after school, and he absentmindedly put their backpacks into the trunk. Mary glimpsed a body in the back, mostly covered by a body bag. It was a young boy, fully dressed, but one arm was broken. At first Mary was very surprised, but then she just laughed and shook her head. Why didn't she report the body to the police?
The body bag was used for protection.
The boy was six years old.
The boy was not anyone Mary had ever seen before.
He was not related to Mitch.
Mitch loved the boy.
AnswerThe "body" was a puppet that Mitch was using to practice ventriloquism.
Mitch had told Mary several days before that he was an amateur ventriloquist, but she had never seen his puppet before. At the time of this story, Mitch was taking the dummy to someplace where his arm could be fixed.
