Riddle:

A young woman has decided to stay alone on a very small, deserted island. She knows the dangers, and is well aware if she takes even one step off the island, she will most certainly be badly injured, and may possibly die. This island is not surrounded by water, and even though it is deserted, she knows she’ll be surrounded and observed by hundreds, perhaps even thousands of people who will be forced to look up to her. The record for remaining on this type of island was set back in 1964 when a woman remained on her island for 217 days, so this young woman has her work cut out for her. What kind of island is the young woman staying on, and why would she be risking her life by stepping off of it?

Answer:

The young woman is engaging in the famous fad of Pole Sitting, first made famous back in the 20s and 30s by a man named Alvin “Shipwreck” Kelly. The small platform is supported on a pole which ranges in length from 60 to over 200 feet in length above the ground.

George and his wife were found dead in a building, the detective on arrival found a bullet covered in blood in the room where the crime had been committed. The detective in charge of the case ordered his assistant to ask the maid, the security man, and the cook some questions that might help fish out the culprit. The assistant asked the maid where she was on the day this couple was killed, the maid replied that she wasn't around when the incident happened. She continued that she went to get groceries from the shop next door. The police asked the security man that why hadn't he heard any gunshot, the security man replied that he slept off as he was tired that day so he hadn't heard the gunshot. The assistant asked the cook what had happened on that day and she replied that she was cooking breakfast when she heard a noise in the couple's room. She continued that by the time she got to the room she saw the couples covered in their own pool of blood and she had immediately called the police nearby for help. The detective immediately knew who the culprit was. How did he know?

Answer:

The assistant was the culprit because the detective never told his assistant anything about a bullet. How did the assistant know that a gun was used to kill the COUPLES? He was only ordered to ask the maid, security man, and cook any questions that might help figure out who did it.

Riddle:

A famous magician and his daughter were seated inside a well-known establishment, along with a group of five other customers who were all waiting for service. The magician suddenly turned to his daughter, and told her to look through the window to her right where a bright blue car was parked. In majestic fashion, the magician then swept his arm toward the car and said, "Behold! I command you to rise!", and the car slowly began to rise to a height of one…two…three…, and finally stopped, suspended in mid-air, at a height of four feet! However, no one in the room appeared to be surprised or amazed by the magician’s actions, and the magician's daughter was heard to say, "Daddy, you’re a big ham." Why was no one in awe of the magician's abilities?

Answer:

The magician and his daughter were waiting in a local Firestone vehicle repair shop to have their car repaired. The magician noticed that a technician was about to raise a blue car on a hydronic lift to repair it, so he tried to take credit for the levitation. Needless to say, neither the other customers or his daughter were impressed.

As you are getting off your plane, you are met by two animal quarantine officials who work for one of the 50 United States. They inform you that your pet squirrel, "Nut Job", is not allowed in their state, as their state is squirrel-free. They further inform you that ferrets, gerbils, hamsters, and snakes also do not exist in their state, and will never be welcome there. What kind of southern hospitality is this, and what is the name of this state?

Answer:

The state is Hawaii, and the animals listed in the puzzle above do not exist in the state, because it is illegal to own or bring them onto any of the Hawaiian islands.
