A man leaves home, and when he returns to it a short while later, he finds two masked men waiting for him.

What’s happening?

(Last week’s answer: The man had already sugared his tea before sending it back. No one guessed this one!)

A man called to a waiter in a restaurant, “There’s a fly in my tea!”

“I will bring you a fresh cup of tea,” said the waiter, and he did.

After a few moments, the man called out, “This is the same cup of tea!”

How did he know?

(Last week’s answer: It’s daytime and the sun is out. A. Nonny Mouse, Evan, Jordan and Sierra all guessed it!)

A man dressed all in black, wearing a black ski mask, stands at a crossroads in a totally black-painted town. All of the streetlights in town are broken. There is no moon. A black-painted car without headlights drives straight toward him, but turns in time and doesn’t hit him.

Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice all live in the same house. Bob and Carol go out to a movie, and when they return, Alice is lying dead on the floor in a puddle of water and glass. It is obvious that Ted killed her, but Ted is not prosecuted or severely punished.

Why not? Leave comments with your theories!

(Last week’s answer: The surgeon is the boy’s mother. Chris, Susan, and Tina guessed it!)

Look for a new Minute Mystery every Friday! 

A boy and his father are injured in a car accident. Both are taken to a hospital. The father dies at arrival, but the boy lives and is taken to surgery. A grey-haired, bespectacled surgeon looks at the boy and says, “I cannot operate on this boy — he’s my son.”

How is this possible? Leave comments with your ideas!

The answer will be posted next Friday!
