Reds in the Forest

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 little eight year old boy went to confession and told the priest that he murdered a red.

The priest was sure the boy meant Indian because "red" was a non-politically correct term for Native American. He thought the boy's parents were old-fashioned because it was just wrong to say Native American that way. Also, there was an Indian reservation just past a forest next to the school.

The priest thought that the boy did this by accident, but the little boy said he and all his white friends were murdering reds in the forest together. The priest was shocked and said for penance to go apologise to the family of the victim.

The next day when the boy came home he was covered with red bumps.

Why?


Answer

The boy had meant "red ants" and there was an ant hill in the forest. When the priest said apologise to the family he went to the ant hill and got bitten by the ants while he was sitting next to the ant hill begging for forgiveness.
