Riddle:

A retired zookeeper owned a huge house with a very large and beautifully landscaped yard. The neighbors of the man drove past his home daily, and admired his arrangement of all the large trees and numerous healthy bushes which adorned the front yard. One day, a neighbor drove by the former zookeeper's house, and was astonished to see a living, fully-grown ostrich standing in the yard. A week later, neighbors reported seeing a live, fully-grown bear standing near the ostrich. As the next few weeks passed, the neighbors saw a tiger, a lion, a hippopotamus, and finally an elephant appear in the yard of the retired zookeeper --- all fully- grown and alive, but without any cages or bars to protect the neighborhood from them. Amazingly, not one person who lived in that area ever expressed any fear of the uncaged animals, and no one ever called the police for protection. Were these people living in the Twilight Zone? What exactly was going on here, and why weren't any of these people afraid for their lives?

Answer:

The retired zookeeper was also a professional topiary expert. Mixing together the best of his two worlds, he sculpted zoo animals from his fully-grown, healthy, living bushes in his front yard, much to the delight of his neighbors.

Four middle-aged people were reminiscing about their individual journeys through life. Two of them were college grads, and the other two were business people. The first was heard to say, "When I happened upon that uranium deposit, that’s what started me off to a wealthy future." The second replied, "No such luck for me. I never recovered financially from that skunk-farm fiasco I inherited from my relative." The third person said, "If I hadn’t taken revenge on my opponent and got all that money from him, I would probably have ended up in the poorhouse." Lastly, the fourth person responded, "Well, you two tycoons can celebrate your riches obtained in life, but that shrunken head collection I invested my money in, as well as my wasting my money on $5,000 toupees, raccoon coats, and buying a Rolls Royce which I couldn’t afford, just about left me penniless." Surprisingly, these four people have one main thing in common. Can you identify what that one thing is, and can you explain how they became entangled in such bizarre events in life?

Answer:

The four people had just finished playing the board game, LIFE, and were discussing some of the good and bad things they had encountered while playing.
