Lumps of SugarTrick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.
Three men each had a cup of coffee. Each man put an odd number of lumps of sugar in his coffee - twelve in total. How many lumps of sugar did each man take?
AnswerThe first man took one, the second man took one, and the third man took ten lumps.
"But," you protest, "ten isn't an odd number!"
Oh, I don't know about that - do *you* know anyone who takes ten lumps of sugar in his coffee?
