Joe and Bob are walking down the street. Joe stumbles across a $100 bill on the sidewalk across the street. Joe picks up the bill and tells Bob, "Since you were with me when I found this, I'll give you half." So they go to the bank and half it up. But Joe decides that since he found the $100, he should have 10 more dollars than Bob. How much would Joe have and how much would Bob have?

It could have been a trick. a "100 Bill" is not necessarily a $100 bill. It could have been in different currency, or perhaps, a bill for the dry cleaning.

Every time I think I've seen the lamest teaser here, I find a lamer one! Good job!

I agree, lame.

Here's a teaser: I'm thinking of an integer between 1 and 3, and it's not 1 and it's not 3. What number is it?

That "teaser" above would go in the same quality bucket as this one.
