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.

The guy was obviously either very stupid or very sleepy...

You should probably have a hint somewhere saying that there was a fishing pole by the phone booth...

I have heard this one before, definetely one of my favorites!

I thought he had been in the phone booth and he shot himself. When he died he fell and broke the window. There is glass all around because isn't a phone booth made of glass. I know- the real answer is much better 8P

Not sure how to die from that... But he wasn't very smart. Was he in a videochat box?

I'm not sure there's a telephone box on Earth with glass that flimsy... But I could be wrong...
