More ways to get Braingle...

The French Speaker

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.

One man went into work one day and spoke all French. He didn't get any weird looks and everybody understood him. It was a perfectly normal day. Why?

So easy, it was almost stupid. A better answer would have been that he was a French teacher or something, I don't know.

What's the opposite of an AHA! moment? Perhaps a DUH! moment? Or, if you're a Simpsons fan, a DOH! moment? Whatever you call the opposite of an AHA! moment, this teaser produced one. Perhaps if the answer had been, "He was in Quebec," or "He was in Senegal," or even "He wasthe French Ambassador to Haiti," you might have had a passable teaser,but as it stands - WAAAAY too easy.

Way too easy, and pretty boring. Sorry. The second I saw it wasn't a trick question, and saw the word 'French", I instantly thought France. And what do you know, that turned out to be the answer. Too obvious. I think it would've been a better teaser if you said it was in America, and the answer would be like 'he was a French teacher' or something like that. Ah well.

Okay this is an English website, so the submitter could be forgiven to assume that the default language of people here is English. A trickier teaser would be a spanish speaker not getting weird looks...he's an illegal immigrant from Mexico working in walmart...hehehe

It was really easy, I got it right away, but still, a really fun teaser. An easy teaser is not a bad one, so dont let the comments about it being bad or boring get you down. Keep up the good work!

What is so wrong with an easy teaser? Either you get it or it gets you...nothing more, nothing less. Beside not everyone here uses the same language; it's not just an English speaking world.

i got it right way, then figured that couldn't figure out the answer because i thought your answer was so obvious it had to be wrong. very good, but should be under trick, maybe?
