Trick questions can pass the time when you have nothing to text your friends about on weekends or to talk to your parents about at dinner. Even though the answer they give you will probably be wrong, they'll laugh when they hear the correct one. Here are some of the silliest trick questions that just might stump your pals:
"None, or it wouldn’t be a hole." A hole is a hallow place in the ground, which means that there's no dirt inside of it, only around it. If you really want to trick your friends with this one, make it sound like a math problem by giving even more specific measurements about how big the hole is and the location of it.
"No, but since he’s dead it would be kind of difficult." Think about it. If a husband has a widowed wife, that means that he must be dead.
"It didn't. Roosters don't lay eggs." This is another great trick question, because most people will be too focused on trying to figure out the physics of a fall than remembering that a rooster can't even lay an egg.
"She kicked it up." Everything that goes up must come down. Of course, anyone who hears this trick question will wonder why the ball is acting like a boomerang.
"No problem. He sleeps at night." This one will make your friends groan, because it's just so obvious. Why would he sleep in the middle of the day, anyway?
"None. Noah was in that story!" Your super smart friends might figure this one out. However, everyone else will be left in the dark.
"The 8 sheep that were left." This question just gives you the answer. However, most people won't expect it, so they won't catch on. That's what makes it so clever.
"All months have 28 days." If a day has 31 days, it must have at least 28 days. Of course, your friends will probably only be thinking of February and will get it completely wrong.
"Dinner." You can eat dinner-type foods for breakfast, but you can't actually eat dinner. It's just plain impossible.
"You don't bury survivors." This one is an old one, but you still might catch someone off guard with it. You never know until you try.
"There are no stairs because it is a one story house!" Only your most observant friends will catch this one. It's a little tricky.
Trick questions are fun, because no one ever sees them coming. Did any of these questions fool you? What other trick questions do you love to ask?
