If you throw me from the window,
I will leave a grieving wife.

You'll see someone giving life!

What am I?

Personally, I think it works just as well as a statement about the chaos of our culture which has even affected our eating habits. Most of the time food is thrown out of a drive through window in a robotic, impersonal, inhuman manner, shattering the idea of the nuclear family and saddening our mothers that worked so hard to raise us in a loving environment. But if you take the time to walk into a place and enjoy the food socially, you'll be living again.

lulz. jk.

Wow, Fermats - I never thought I could be so philosophical! You must be one of those guys who writes reviews of abstract art!! AND you make a great point about society.

Very clever and enjoyable. Did not get it , but it still was a good one.
Dec 30, 2012

Really liked it, I did not come up with the answer but once I saw the answer it made perfect sense. Those are the best ones. Now off to see if I can stump others with it.
Dec 30, 2012

I LOVED this one! Very clever - thanks!
Dec 30, 2012

Haven't changed my mind since 2009.
Dec 30, 2012

Terrific teaser. Well written, makes perfect sense, and a great sense of wordplay. I don't often comment, but this one deserves it. Great job.
Dec 30, 2012

Loved it!
Dec 31, 2012

Well, i almost got it. I assumed it was 'Letter'. The lette rbeing thrown out of the window would leave a grieving wife, because the letter could be of a dead husband at war.
If the letter is coming throught the door, then new life could be that letter was a college acceptance letter, making ay for a better life.

My English teacher in fifth grade gave this teaser to us. It took us almost a week to figure it out! Ah, nostalgia. great teaser.
Dec 30, 2015

Clever teaser. I didn't remember it, but I see I commented on it in 2012.

Happy New Year everyone!
Dec 30, 2015

Same as my last two comments.
