Souper

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.

how are we supposed to get that one? I say the bowl was too shallow for the spoon so she needed a straw to finish it off, that is a better answer.

There could be a lot more answers to this. Maybe you could've stated the person was near-sighted or something. But if my contact lenses fell into my soup, I wouldn't have drank the same soup again.

I am guessing that thos ewho have posted negative comments have not read the statement about what a 'situation Puzzle' is: "Situation Puzzles are not designed to be answered by themselves. The idea is for one person to know the answer and other people in a group to try and guess it using yes or no questions. The first person to get the answer is the winner."

Hopefully she wasn't going to try to clean that off and wear it again. Talk about gross.

why would it suddenly fall?

I thought the soup was too oily, so she'd suck the soup from the bottom so the oil would stay at the top.

I thought that she had severe arthritis, and the spoon was difficult to hold.

Soup should never be eaten with a straw. Yikes! I find the riddle innapropriate in regards to etiquette.

What did she say to the waiter? "Can I have a straw so I can suck my contact lens out of my soup?" She should just pour it over a cloth. Then again should she really wear soupy contact lenses? She is gross all around.
