Default Brainteasers

Here are some quick brainteasers. I ended up getting one wrong, #9

1. Johnny’s mother had three children. The first child was named April. The second child was named May. What was the third child’s name?

2. A clerk at a butcher shop stands five feet ten inches tall and wears size 13 sneakers. What does he weigh?

3. Before Mt. Everest was discovered, what was the highest mountain in the world?

4. How much dirt is there in a hole that measures two feet by three feet by four feet?

5. What word in the English language is always spelled incorrectly?

6. Billie was born on December 28th, yet her birthday always falls in the summer. How is this possible?

7. In British Columbia you cannot take a picture of a man with a wooden leg. Why not?

8. If you were running a race and you passed the person in 2nd place, what place would you be in now?

9. Which is correct to say, “The yolk of the egg is white” or “The yolk of the egg are white?”

10. A farmer has five haystacks in one field and four haystacks in another. How many haystacks would he have if he combined them all in one field?

My guesses
1.) Johnny
2.) meat!
3.) Mt Everest, still
4.) none, it's a hole
5.) incorrectly
6.) she's in the Southern hemisphere
7.) there are no men with wooden legs?
8.) 1st
9.) neither yolks are yellow
10.) one big one?


Now I'll go check

ETA got 7 wrong and got caught with stupid 8 lol (I've seen that stupid "passing first place thing" 100 times and didn't read properly. sad. ETA nope it's always "passing second place" I have this one totally screwed up lol)
