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.
A man and a woman went to the beach one day. There, they saw a teenage girl walking up to people and talking to them. Some replied heatedly, and some took what she had to give. The man and the woman suspected that she was selling drugs, so they decided to take it to the police. But when they were about to do so, the woman discovered that the girl only walked up to people with electric supplies. So the next time they went to the beach, they brought a boom box along. The woman went swimming, and the girl walked up to the man. What did she sell?
She sold batteries. She only walked up to the people with the electric supplies because they are potential customers.
Oh, you're gonna hate me for this:
"She sells C cells by the sea shore."

|I still don't know what electric supplies are, so I'm not quite sure what this teaser is talking about.|

|"electric supplies" = electronic equipment, like radios, tape decks, miniature watermisting personal fans... maybe she was a rude "C cell seller" =)|

|I liked it, and I liked the joke at the end. I thought she was selling CD's or tapes, but batteries are a better choice. Good job! |

|If the people thought she was selling drugs, and they wanted to got to the police with no proof, then the woman probably drowned because she is so stupid she thought she could swim. And the boom-box probably had a cord meant to go into the electrical outlet.|
