    Riddle time

    OK lets get the detective thinking caps on.

    A man was found murdered on Sunday morning. His wife immediately called the police. The police questioned the wife and staff and got these alibis:
    The Wife said she was sleeping.
    The Cook was cooking breakfast.
    The Gardener was picking vegetables.
    The Maid was getting the mail.
    The Butler was cleaning the closet.

    The police instantly arrested the murdered. Who did it and how did they know?
    If at first you don't succeed, then bomb disposal probably isn't for you.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to there level and beat you on experience.

    They arrested the Maid. The maid did it because the mail doesn't get delivered on Sunday, therefore making his/her alibi a bunch of bullhockey.

    Hmm. That didn't take long.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    How this one...


    Rope breaks, bell rings, man dies.

    The answer is very specific. While there are many possible answers, there is only one where a specific progression happens causing the death.

    A blind man enjoys walking near a cliff, and uses the sound of a buoy to gauge his distance from the edge. One day the buoy's anchor rope breaks, allowing the buoy to drift away from the shore, and the man walks over the edge of the cliff.

    Umm, no, it's called common logic. Maid was getting mail....it's a Sunday...mail isn't delivered on Sundays. Pretty easy.

    Hmm, I'm thinking something Quasimodo-ish. The man is a bell-ringer. The rope breaks as the bell rings, and the man falls to his death.

    A cop was walking past a restaurant when he heard someone scream - "No John, not the gun!" He ran inside and and saw a doctor, a lawyer, a milkman, and a dead body on the floor. He promptly walked over to the milkman and arrested him. He didn't witness the shooting and there was no apparent evidence to prove who shot the person and no one told him who the killer was. How did the policeman instantly know it was the milkman?

    It's a good tool, but it eliminates the need to think.

    The milkman is the only one who'd have either a nametag or his name on his uniform.

    Good answer, though not the one the riddle writer reckoned.
