The Talking ClockSituation 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.
A man had just redone his apartment, and he wanted to show it off to his friends. He showed them his whole apartment and in the final room there was a giant gong. One friend asked, "Why do you have a giant gong in the middle of the room?" The owner of the apartment replied, "Well, because it is my talking time clock." Another friend questioned, "Does it actually work?" So in reply the owner nodded and proved to everyone that it truly was a talking time clock. How did he prove this??
AnswerThe owner hit the gong and it sounded loudly, and then a voice called from the other side of the wall. This voice shouted, "Hey! Stop sounding that gong. It's one thirty in the morning!"
