A man owned a casino and invited some friends. It was a dark stormy night, and they all placed their money on the table right before the lights went out. When the lights came back on, the money was gone. The owner put a rooster in an old rusty tea kettle. He told everyone to get in line and touch the kettle after he turned the lights off, and the rooster will crow when the robber touched it. After everyone touched it, the rooster didn't crow, so the man told everyone to hold out their hands. After examining all the hands, he pointed out who the robber was. How did he know who stole the money?

I didn't even loook at the answer, yet I am sure I have it. So are they gonna beat this guy up now? I really enjoy the "what happens next" aspect of these riddles.

Fun - but better if the kettle was sooty rather than rusty

Why would a kettle be sooty? Rusty makes sence since kettles are generally involved w/ water and rust is a result of water. But I liked this very much even though I didn't get it right.

No robber would fall for that. He'd know that the rooster wouldn't crow.

How many times has this setup been used? i can remeber at least three stories I've read that have a "mystery" like this one. Who'd be stupid enought o think the rooster would actually crow anyway?

I guess the robber would think it wouldn't crow, but decided not to take his chances, thinking, "how would they know if just don't touch it"

Hey, great mystery teaser ! One thing you could have improved upon though was the part where you stated "After everyone touched it..." when infact not everyone did. A better substitution for this would have been to say something like "After giving everyone time (or a chance) to touch it...".

I can't wait to go to a casino that has no back up generator on a stormy night so I can see their rooster and rusty dishes!
