Grats.

Three pieces of coal, a carrot, and a scarf are laying on the lawn. Nobody put them on the lawn, but there is a perfectly logical reason why they should be there. What is it?

also going back to the one about the identical drinks (i know its old. if you dont wan't to humor me, that's alright).

my guess was as follows:

you said they were both served the drinks; no one said anything about the two drinking them. one drank it, the other didn't?

Haha, yeah. Maybe that one was too easy-- it just seemed appropriate.

I would've just answered "No.", then it'd make no difference. =P


Next Puzzle: A man was pushing his car, but by the time he reached a hotel, he knew that he had just become bankrupt. Why so?

Bankrupt? I would lose my hotel, maybe a house, and if I lost the land, that would suck. Is this some sort of game?
