Oct 31, 2004

for future reference, where should it go?
Nov 01, 2004

I'd say it should be trick.
Nov 04, 2004

I would say trick as well, but what about the answer that the bill were marked and that he could prove they were his

Ha! I never even guessed that. Very clever. I can certainly understand why the robbers left them!
Dec 02, 2004

How about the bills on two very expensive ducks, a robber probably wouldn't know how much they were worth.
Feb 13, 2006

nice one i liked it very much i had to put that in my favorits
Mar 10, 2006

Very clever, one of my favourites!!!

Jan 05, 2010

Great teaser! I never thought of that..
Dec 09, 2010

I thought they left the bills there, and they were like fake or something....
Mar 02, 2013

You got me, this time! Good one!
Mar 02, 2013

Sorry,I give this one a thumbs down.
Mar 02, 2013

Way to obvious to be fun. And it was a burglary not a robbery.
Mar 02, 2013

Farfetched - it would depend on where you live whether it was a burglary or a robbery. Different jurisdictions use different terms for things. For instance where I live NO ONE would call it an "electricity bill" we call it a "Hydro Bill"
IT was pretty easy to solve but I think this should be put in the "too many possible answers" category. Why do they have to be an electricity bill and a phone bill? Why not a cable bill and a credit card bill? Or a gas bill and a water bill? How about an insurance bill and a rent bill?
Mar 02, 2013

Too many possible answer for this one.
Mar 02, 2013

I didn't get it, also thought there were a variety of answers. But if the answers included the ones listed, then you Did get it! I like being reminded to think outside the box & stretch my mind a bit.
Mar 02, 2013

For those who aren't "getting it", it's two bills that must be PAYED, not two bills as in dollar bills that are worth money
Mar 02, 2013

Quite clever. I went off on " The answer better not be they were counterfeit " cause nothing would logiaclly go there. I enjoyed being fooled
Mar 02, 2013

Very very good. I didn't get it but I usually don't. Fun though. I did try but I gave up cause I just couldn't come up with anything. It was just too obvious I guess. I'm looking at bills too and not even thinking that kind of "bill"
Love it. Thanks.
Mar 02, 2013

Very tricky. I didn't get it.
Mar 03, 2013

Like many others, I thought it was Monopoly money - I like your answer better!
