The Bush

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.

I was thrown off...the way it reads, they police found two suspects in the bush. Then they would have both gotten the rash. Other than that, good.

cool, but i thought poison ivy was a vine, not a bush.

Assuming you were allergic, not all people are and even if you were, it would have to be a repeat exposure to the plant because you cannot contract the dermatitis on first contact.

ALW007 is right... the first time you touch poison ivy, your body doesn't know what it is yet so there's no reaction. The second time and onward, you get an immune reaction because your body has built up a defense!

Frank, if I were the police I'd be pretty suspicious if I find two people in a poison ivy bush along with a bag of diamonds. Cool teaser!

Nice one. My friend had poison ivy once. She had to miss school.
