containing eight words, "he, her, here, ere, in, rein, I, re" besides the word itself.

An easy one:

Two fathers and two sons walked down the lane, stopped at a store and bought newspapers. When they got home, they only had three sets of newspapers. How's that so?

Yeah, that's right ^^

Here's a bit of a challenge:

A teacher was having trouble getting her students to learn their facts, but she noticed that her students often played the game "Rock, Paper, Scissors". She made a game with similar rules in order to encourage the students to learn their facts.

The class would be divided into three teams: Rock, Paper and Scissors. The teacher would ask the students a question and the class would raise their hands if they knew the answer. If the first person to answer the question correctly is in the Rock team, he or she would choose one player from the Scissors team to be eliminated. Similarly, if a player from the Scissors team was first to answer the question, then he or she would eliminate a member from the Paper team. Lastly, if a player from the Paper team was first to answer correctly, he or she would eliminate a member from the Rock team.

The teacher would then continue asking questions until only one team still has members. That team would be declared the winner and all its members would win a small chocolate.

However, as soon as she explained the rules to the class, one particularly smart student immediately found a large flaw that made the game unplayable. Can you do the same?

Uhm... That paper can't beat rock?

I mean, come on! Is it just supposed to magically wrap around rock and leave it immobile?

Well yeah ^^

Let's say all members of the scissors team had been eliminated by the rock team. If that's the case, then there would be no team to eliminate the rock team, and therefore, the paper would lose.

So to win, you'd have to keep still and not answer any questions, meaning that the game would never end if they all did.

NEXT!

A sundial is a timepiece that has the fewest number of moving parts. Which timepiece has the most moving parts?

Three brothers share a family sport:
A non-stop marathon
The oldest one is fat and short
And trudges slowly on
The middle brother's tall and slim
And keeps a steady pace
The youngest runs just like the wind,
Speeding through the race
"He's young in years, we let him run,"
The other brothers say
"'Cause though he's surely number one,
He's second, in a way."

The three brothers are...?

........if it weren't for that second thing at the end and the fact that I'm staring at the answer hanging on my wall right now, I wouldn't have got this.

The three brothers are the hands on a clock. XP

oh cool, you haven't figured it out yet[rolls eyes, grins]

How 'bout this one:

Mice are famous for their ability to multiply at breakneck speeds. The type of mouse we have here gives birth once a month, birthing 12 babies each time. Baby mice mature and can give birth two months after they are born.

You picked up one of these cute baby mice at the pet shop and brought it home the day after it was born. In 10 months from now, how many mice will you have?
