Q: What do you put in a toaster?
A: The answer is bread. If you said "toast," then give up now and go do something else before you hurt yourself. If you said "bread", go to the next
Q: Say "silk" five times. Now, spell "silk." What do cows drink?
A: Cows drink water. If you said "milk," please do not attempt the next question. Your brain is obviously overstressed and may even overheat. It
may be that you need to content yourself with reading something more appropriate such as "Children's World." If you said "water," then proceed to the
Q: If a red house is made with red bricks, a blue house is made with blue bricks, a pink house is made with pink bricks, a black house is made with
black bricks, what is a greenhouse made with?

Q: Twenty years ago, a plane is flying at 20,000 feet over Germany. If you will recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany
and East Germany. Anyway, during the flight, TWO of the engines fail. The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing, decides on
a crash landing. Unfortunately, the engine fails before he has time and the plane crashes smack in the middle of "no-man's-land" between East Germany
and West Germany. Where would you bury the survivors - East Germany or West Germany or in "no-man's-land"?
A: You don't, of course, bury the survivors. If you said ANYTHING else, you are a real dunce and you must NEVER try to rescue anyone from a plane
crash. Your efforts would not be appreciated... If you said, "Don't bury the survivors" then proceed to the next question.
Q: If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60th of a degree every minute, then how many degrees will the hour hand move in one hour?
A: One degree. If you said "360 degrees" or anything else other than "one degree," you are to be congratulated on getting this far, but you are
obviously out of your league. Turn your pencil in and exit the room. Everyone else proceed to the final question.

In Swansea, three people get off and five people get on. In Carmathen, six people get off and three get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven. Now,
what was the name of the bus driver?
A: Oh, come on now... It was you!
