The Man

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.

John put the man's face in his hands. Then he asked his friend what he wanted. Then he threw the man's face high up in the air. Then John celebrated winning. What is going on?


You have seen "The Man" before, and probably have done the same thing as John did.

What Next?

Reasonably good. Makes more sense than most of the situation teasers posted here.

I agree. Great job making sense!

Did I miss something? Does it have to be only Lincoln (penny)? The "Man" could be any face on a coin!

Jefferson - nickel
Roosevelt - dime
Washington - quarter

this teaser is not universal, that means only Americans could answer the teaser.

No. I thought about that after I made the teaser, that it could be any coin. True, it is not universal, but usually countries have coins with figures on them as currency. If a person not from america read this to their friends, it could easily be adapted, I would think.

I didn't get it because I am English and we have our Queen on all coins so not a man.

Well, situation teasers are meant to tell to friends, so just say a woman or something like that instead of man.
