解 說
❶ 一個男孩和一位工程師在健行。這個男孩是工程師的兒子,但工程師卻不是這個男孩的父親。那這位工程師是誰?
答:工程師是男孩的母親。(工程師未必是男性,帶兒子健行的當然也不必是男性。)
❷ 世界上每個人都需要它。人們通常慷慨地給予它,但卻永遠不願意接受它。那麼,這是什麼?
答:建議。(建議更精確地說就是『忠告』,忠言逆耳利於行的那種建議。)
❸ 他正在一條很長的路上,以極快的速度駕駛一輛黑色卡車。卡車的燈熄滅了,那天晚上是黑暗無光的「新月」。一位老太太慢慢過馬路。他如果不停下卡車,就會撞到那位老太太。他是怎麼做的?
答:卡車司機在看到這位老太太後,立即就停下卡車,讓她老人家先過馬路,因為雖是「新月」,當時卻是陽光燦爛、視野遼闊的白天!
❹四個孩子和他們的寵物狗擠在一把小雨傘下行走。但五個小傢伙都沒有變溼。怎麼會這樣?
答:因為那時沒下雨!
❺這是專屬於你的「財產」,但是你卻很少使用它。那是什麼?
答:你的名字。
❻我會在一分鐘出現一次,一會兒出現兩次,但千年來永遠不會出現。我是誰?
答:單字「M」。
❼我是世界上最「滑溜溜」的國家,猜猜我是誰?
答:希臘。(因為希臘「Greece」的英文發音與油脂「Grease」相同,所以油油亮亮的它,當然就是最「滑溜溜」的國家了。)
❽你總是製造更多,但留下更多,你做的愈多,留下的就愈多。它是什麼呢?
答:腳印。
❾哪個移動的比較快?熱還是冷?
答:熱。因為你可以抓得到「冷」,但抓不到「熱」。「抓到冷」(catch a cold)的意思是「著涼、感冒」,但沒有「抓到熱」的詞。
❿有一種鴨子永遠不會游泳,那是什麼鴨?
答:橡皮鴨。
