What is It?

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.
Paul has something on the tip of his nose, but he's not sure what it is. He can't take it off because he doesn't have arms. He can't ask his parents because they are blind and deaf. There is no one near his house for twenty miles. He lives on a farm. He doesn't own a car because he rarely needs to go into town to get anything, so he can't ask anyone. What should he do?

Dear Marple, Imagine there is a boy named Paul. There is something stuck to the tip of his nose, so he can't see it. He wants to know what it is. He would take it off his nose with his hands so that he can look at it but he doesn't have any hands. He would go and ask his parents what it was, but they can't here his because they are deaf. He also can't use sign language to ask them because they are also blind. He would ask someone else what is on his nose, but there is no one around for miles because they live in the middle of no where ona farm. Imagine the nearest town

is a mile away. He can't drive into town because he doesn't have a car (he doesn't have a car because everything you would ordinary have to buy at a grocery store could have been supplied at the farm). Under all these circumstances what should he do? Go look in a mirror of coarse! If you were under all these circumstances, you would still be able to look in a mirror and see the tip of your nose (and see the thing that is on the tip of your nose). Hope that helped! Thanks for reading!

No problem Marple :)

I thought the point was to get the thing off his nose. And poor Paul

What should he do... about what? It doesn't ask whether he is trying to see it, take it off, find out what it is or anything else for that matter.

Hey! It's obvious he wants to get the thing off. I think you are being too pedantic! This is an excellent teaser.

If he only wants to see it, he could look in a mirror. If he wants to get it off, he could just rub it off against something- a couch or a wall. I liked the idea but it was kinda morbid. I mean the kid has no arms, and his parents are both blind and deaf? :-? Still, good teaser.
