Many '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.
A woman was building a birdhouse. She had exactly the right amount of nails to complete the project - no extras. While she was hammering, she broke a nail! But she was still able to finish the birdhouse. How?

This was a good teaser, but personally, I thought that this one was a little too EZ. Yay! First one!!LOL :) :D :P :lol:

Cute, but easy :wink: Perhaps if you had said, "A carpenter was building a birdhouse"? Knowing that the builder is a woman makes the solution much more apparent - everyone knows how obsessive women are about their fingernails! :lol: P.S. What you really wanted to say was that she had the exact NUMBER of nails, not "amount." When you're counting things, it's "number ," when you're weighing or measuring them, it's "amount." :roll:

This one is more fun, then tough. :P But, a good one, none the less. Even some men are quite conscious of their nails, including my dear Just keep those bandages handy. :wink:

while i agree that it is any easy teaser, it is a great teaching device for children to learn about homophones

I was asking my brother about this one, and he said: "I think that she was using one nail for the birdie to stand on, so she really didn't need it." When I told him the real answer, here's his response: "That makes no sense, why did she break a fingernail? Why not a normal nail?!? :o " He's an absolute idiot. But, I did have to think about it a little :oops:
