More ways to get Braingle...

The Clumsy Driver.

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 day, Charlie was driving his car when he got a flat tire. While changing the tire, he accidentally dropped all four lug nuts from the tire through a sewer grate in the road. After banging his head several times on the roof of his car for being so careless, he attached his spare tire the only way he knew how and drove to the nearest service station to repair his flat and replace the lost lug nuts. How did he attach the spare tire?

You forgot the part about him asking someone at the insane asylum, who tells him what to do, then says "Just because I'm crazy doesn't mean I'm stupid."

you threw me off with the banging the head on the roof of the car. i thought he must have knocked loose some parts that worked in the lug nuts' place. good teaser regardless, thanks.

and he said "oh fuuuuudge" as the lugnuts disappeared into the grate. onluy he didn't say fudge-- he said the queen mother of dirty words. the F--- word. and then his mom washed out his mouth out with lifebuoy, which made him go blind. sad.

I just thankful that you educated someone with this one, I've never sucessfully changed a tire but i would have tried this before paying someone. Thanks again to the Marine and Naval officer that stopped to change my tire for me on Christmas Day 2 years ago on HW 20, God bless and keep all of our troops.
