Ink Catastrophe

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.

Bob had just finished typing a report for school on his computer. However, as he was trying to print his report, he realized he was out of black ink! He wasn't allowed to write the report, nor was he able to acquire more ink in any fashion, yet Bob still handed in his report the following day, completed. How?

Next time maybe you should add a story to it or make it longer.

Sciencesteven, I think it means he couldn't acquire BLACK ink in any way.

Decent teaser. A little obvious but it works well. [Before coming to the conclusion, I was thinking a little more creatively and assuming that maybe if he had ink enough in his pens to write he could use it for the printer, but yeah. That's mad.]

Regarding how he could not "acquire more ink in any fashion," I think it means that he had different coloured inks already, just not black. He didn't have to get any more ink in order to hand it in.
