    A couple my kids like that I know.

    1) A man has to get a Fox, a Chicken, and a bushel of corn across a river in a small boat.  Only himself and one other item at a time.  The fox will eat the chicken if left together, and the chicken will eat the corn if left together.  How can you get all 3 across without something being eaten?

    2) A cowboy rides into town on Friday, gets a room at the local saloon/hotel and stays 3 nights.  He then rides out of town on Friday.  How is this possible?

    3) A rooster is perfectly straddling the peak of a roof, the roof is a 10/12 pitch off both sides. The wind is blowing dead from the south at 15mph and the ridge line of the roof is perfectly running North and South.  If  it lays an egg which way will roll off the roof, EAST or WEST?

    Meh. I’ve been working on the rowing machine. I’m looking for more exercise so I added a trip.

     

    Besides, it didn’t ask how to do it in the fewest trips.

    That rowing went to your head because your first step left the hungry fox all alone with the tasty chicken.  {#emotions_dlg.mathews_whistle}
