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?


Bob had run out of black, not every color. Assuming Bob has a color printer, he would still be able to print it in another color. Most teachers would accept a dark blue or grey.
