Picture Purchase

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.

Picture Purchase. I like the idea of this teaser, but it seems like there are several spelling/or grammatical errors and I`m not sure exactly what was intended. Is the first `brought` correct or mispelled, for example.

Fun stuff...I've done this myself. In many cases a high quality frame is far more valuable than the print or painting inside.

I saw this one somewhere else. I can't say whether it is word by word but is exactly the same meaning. But anyway, it was quite easy though.

incidentaly i've heard this one a lot.

in fact i even saw this episode of benny hill where they stole all the frames of the pictures, not the pictures themselves.

Bts, take a spelling course. You need it. And I thought what you thought too, sweetime. An art expert doesn't always have to buy expensive and valuable art...
