Hunting in the Jungle
Trivia brain teasers have some element of trivia in them, but they are not just pure trivia questions.
Lord Fulabunk was recounting one of his many hunting expeditions to a group of colleagues. 'I was deep in a jungle, in the Congo. The air was thick and musky. Sweat dripped from my brow and my fellow hunters had already decided to give up and return to camp, but I was determined to capture our prey. Suddenly, I heard a snap of a twig from behind me. As I reeled around, I shot a huge tiger dead as it leapt to devour me! And that is how I came upon this fine trophy you see hanging on my wall here.'
'Nonsense!', cried Baron Knowital, 'Your story is nothing but a fabrication!'
How did Baron Knowital know that Lord Fulabunk's tale was false?
HintLocation, location, it's all in the location.
There are no tigers in Congo, which is in Africa. Tigers are from India.

|Yeah, where the heck do people come up w/ such weird names But yes, these ones where someone is being called a liar for one reason or another are a bit too easy. Even if you don't know the facts, you can assume that tigars don't live where he claims he shot one.|
