The Dog Ate My Homework!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.
Jack went to school one day with an excuse and no homework. When he got to class, he went up to his teacher. "Buddy, my dog, ate my homework," he told her.
"OK, now I know you're lying," she said.
"How?" he asked. "You know I have a dog named Buddy."
What did the teacher respond?
