    Can you solve these?

    Mystery Number One
    ---------------------
    A man was found murdered Sunday morning. His wife immediately called the police.

    The police questioned the wife and staff and got these answers:

    The wife said she was sleeping.

    The cook was preparing breakfast.

    The gardener was gathering vegetables.

    The maid was getting the mail.

    The butler was polishing shoes in the pantry.

    The police instantly arrested the murderer.

    Who did it and how did they know?

    ---------------------------

    Mystery Number Two
    ---------------------

    A man walks into his bathroom and shoots himself right between the eyes using a real gun with real bullets.

    He walks20out alive, with no blood anywhere and no, he didn't miss and he wasn't Superman or any other crusader wearing a cape.

    How did he do this?
    -------------------------------------------------------

    Mystery Number Three
    ---------------------

    Old Mr. Teddy was found dead in his study by Mr. Fiend.

    Mr. Fiend recounted his dismal discovery to the police: "I was walking by Mr. Teddy's house when I thought I would just pop in for a visit. I noticed his study light was on and I decided to peek in from the outside to see if he was in there. There was frost on the window, so I had to wipe it away to see inside. That is when I saw his body. So I kicked in the front door to confirm my suspicions of foul p lay. I called the police immediately afterward."

    The officer immediately arrested Mr. Fiend for the murder of Mr. Teddy.
    How did he know Mr. Fiend was lying?




    ANSWERS:

    ---------------------

    1. It was the Maid. She said she was getting the mail but there is no mail delivery on Sunday.

    2. He shot his reflection in the bathroom mirror.

    3. Frost forms inside of the window, not the outside. So Mr. Fiend could not have wiped it off to discover Mr. Teddy's body.


    Did you get them right?

    It couldn't have been the Maid, she stated she was getting the mail... The detective spelled it wrong, it was M-A-L-E and she was G-O-O-D. :)

    Sorry, the first answer has to be the butler. He was so nervous he started polishing shoes in the pantry to look busy. ....Rick

    Number one was lame as stated, and number three is not accurate. Fog forms on the in side of the window, frost on the outside. BRGII

    In number one it was the butler. He killed the guy and tried to escape, but being an ex-marine, on his way out the door he saw the shoes and we all know that a marine can't resist shining any pair of shoes.
