A Glass of Water

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.

Had the man actually been thirsty, the bartender would have pulled out his gun, pointed it at the man, and began to fire that squirt gun into his open mouth.

Well I haven't heard it before and I reckon it's one of the best in this category. Once you read the answer it all fits the clues almost uniquely, and yet it is not obvious (unless you've heard it before). Pity most of the other teasers in this category don't follow the pattern of this one. Fantastic!

I love this one!

It took me, like, 20 min. to guess it when my sister told it to me on the car ride back from chicago, but then, it took me forever to guess that fish one about Jack and Jill.

I think the man was trying to flirt with the barman's wife, so the barman got mad and threatened to kill the man.

i liked it. thought he was on fire, and it was a water gun. would have to be a REALLY good water pistol, but then, he's asking for a glass of water to put it out... long story short, i liked your solution.
