how bout this one-

What can be driven, but has no wheels,

and can be sliced and remain whole?

Come on. I don't even golf and I got it.

1. Three people check into a hotel. They pay $30 to the manager and go

to their room. The manager finds out that the room rate is $25 and

gives $5 to the bellboy to return. On the way to the room the bellboy

reasons that $5 would be difficult to share among three people so

he pockets $2 and gives $1 to each person.

Now each person paid $10 and got back $1. So they paid $9 each,

totalling $27. The bellboy has $2, totalling $29.

Where is the remaining dollar?

2. An Arab sheikh tells his two sons to race their camels to a distant

city to see who will inherit his fortune. The one whose camel is

slower will win. The brothers, after wandering aimlessly for days, ask

a wise man for advise. After hearing the advice they jump on the

camels and race as fast as they can to the city. What does the wise

man say?

3. Start with a half cup of tea and a half cup of coffee. Take one tablespoon

of the tea and mix it in with the coffee. Take one tablespoon of this mixture

and mix it back in with the tea. Which of the two cups contains more of its

original contents?

4. I know a word of letters three. Add two, and fewer there will be.

What is the word?

5. There is a long, twisting corridor with a room at the far end. At the near end there is a wallplate with three switches. One of them controls the light bulb in the room. The door is closed and, anyway, with the twists in the corridor you could not see the light from your end. What is the minimum number of trips you must take to the room to find out which switch controls the bulb?
