Confusing brain teaser

This is a braingle brain teaser in the trick category:

"A girl is by herself at her house except for her brother who's sleeping. She gets a bottle of pink lemonade from the refrigerator, but it won't open. She tries to open it with her teeth, but it doesn't work. She tries running it under warm water, but it still won't open. Then she has an idea. Two minutes later, she has it open.

How did she get it open?"

And the answer is something along the lines of "she wakes up her brother and gets him to open it"

I know this technically has an answer, but I think I'm missing something. Why do we assume her brother is more capable of opening the bottle?


Happy ever after in the marketplace, Desmond lets the children lend a hand. Molly stays at home and does her pretty face, and in the evening she's the singer with the band!

As far as I can gather, no one knows the reason, nor can I think of any. I think that teaser needs to be removed. Either that or froggygg should explain (froggygg corrected it).

"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." -Romans 12:2

Figured I should post a link: http://www.braingle.com/braint easers/4432/the-bottle.html (remove the space)

This teaser almost seems like a bad sexist joke

Cloud nine gets all the publicity, but cloud eight actually is cheaper, less crowded, and has a better view.

At least this forms a useful response to the oft-stated notion that Braingle was "better in the old days".

"They don't call it a Quarter Pounder with cheese?" "No man, they got the metric system. The wouldn't know what a Quarter Pounder is."

extremeblueness, I followed the link to the teaser being discussed. It was approved in 2002 which is pretty close to when the site was created (I think). Since it is teaser #4432 and we are now approving teasers with numbers approaching 50,000, that shows how old this teaser really is.

I did not join the site until 2005, so I was not here when that teaser was approved and placed on site. I didn't become an Editor until about 6 months after joining the site. The only reason my name is showing up as correcting it, is because I must have found a typographical or spelling error within the teaser and submitted it for corrections just like everyone else did/does when I first joined the site and took and rated the teasers.

On that note, even though it is in the Trick category, there is really nothing there to solve, so I do agree with the points made here.


SMILE and people will wonder what you are up to!

Uh, maybe she's a little girl and isn't strong enough but her brother is? That's pretty reasonable

Please join my Pokemon WWG! It's going to be awesome!
