    me thinks someone is a cheater........ why did you type that in the 1st person?! :whistling:

    2 fathers and 2 sons go fishing. Each of them catches one fish. So why do they bring home only 3 fishes?

    'cos one of the fathers is also a grandfather.

    2 sons had the same father then they went on jezza kyle to find that that the mum was also a dad and the real dad was once a horse.

    All the chavs clapped and went home for a 3 course pot noodle butty.

    Because it is the grandfather, father and son.

    this is too easy, let me think of one...

    spot on mate!

    You have a barrel of oil, and you need to measure out just one gallon. How do you do this if you only have a three-gallon container and a five-gallon container?

    Fill the 3-gallon container with oil and pour it into the 5-gallon container. Then fill the 3-gallon container again and use it to fill the 5-gallon container the rest of the way. One gallon will be left in the 3-gallon container.

    this is off die hard with a vengance.

    fill the 3 gallon pour it into the 5, then fill the 3 gallon again pour that into the 5 gallon, once full youll have 1 gallon left in the 3 gallon, empty the 5 gallon, pour the 1 gallon from the 3 gallon into the 5 gallon, refill the 3 gallon add to the 5 which already has 1..... bingo. 4!

    and everyone who didnt know all that already got lost 4 words in :whistling:

    thats the one off die hard, which is 1 step further than yours :lol:

    ok heres another one, quite easy i think:
    There was a family living in an round house. There was a mother, a father, a daughter, a son, and a maid. When the son was murdered everyone was suspects. The father said that he did not kill the boy, he was fixing the car outside. The mother said that she did not kill the boy, she was washing the dishes and cleaning the bathroom. The daughter said that she did not kill the boy, she was in her room all day listening to music. The maid said i did not kill the boy, i was sweeping every corner of the house. Who killed the boy?

    A doctor and a bus driver are both in love with the same woman, an attractive girl named Sarah. The bus driver had to go on a long bus trip that would last a week. Before he left, he gave Sarah seven apples. Why?

    well done, last one - I want the reason too

    A man was found murdered on Sunday morning. His wife immediately called the police. The police questioned the wife and staff and got these alibis:
    The Wife said she was sleeping.
    The Cook was cooking breakfast.
    The Gardener was picking vegetables.
    The Maid was getting the mail.
    The Butler was cleaning the closet.

    The police instantly arrested the murdered. Who did it and how did they know?
