One egg was on the floor?
Or the last person took the basket with the last egg in it?

yep, one person takes/owns the basket

next one,

acting on an anonymous phonecall, the police raid a house to arrest a suspected murderer.
they don't know what he looks like, but they know his name is john
inside they find a carpenter, a lorry driver, a mechanic and a fireman playing cards.
without asking his name they immediately arrest the fireman.
how do they know they've got their man??

my last offering

There was once a recluse who never left his home.
There only time anyone ever visited him was when hs food or supllies were delivered. but they never came inside.
One stormy winter night when an icy gale was blowing, he had a nervous breakdown.
he went upstairs, turned off all the lights and went to bed
Next morning he woke to find he had caused the deaths of several hundred people.
why??

A woman is about to be executed. Since she has been a good citizen most of her life, the executioner gives her the option of chosing by which way she can die, no matter how bizarre, time-consuming, or costly it is. What manner of death should she choose?


old age??

A man walks into a bar and asks for a glass of water,
The barman pulls a gun from under the counter and aims at the man,
The man thanks the barman and leaves.

What happened?
