Tell me one thing that makes you confused when asked but makes you laugh when answered? Okay, okay, that was pretty obvious. A riddle. A Friday afternoon after a week full of work definitely calls for some pun and a little fun. So lemme start with a trial round, a rather mysterious story of Mr.Brown.

So, the sad part of the story is that Mr. Brown was killed on Sunday afternoon. Investigations show that his wife said she was reading a book. The butler in the house claimed that he was taking a shower. The chef was busy making breakfast while the maid said she was folding clothes, and of course, the gardener said he was planting tomatoes. Who, then, on the planet, did it? Any guesses? Any? I will reveal the answer before you break your head over who killed Mr.Brown.

Surprisingly, it was the chef who killed Mr.Brown. How did I know that? Simple. Mr.Brown was killed on Sunday AFTERNOON, but the chef was making BREAKFAST? Oops, the chef turns out to be the bad boy here. No, you don’t get to call me lame – that’s what riddles are all about. I wonder what’s lamer, the question or the answer. While I continue to wonder, go ahead and read these 10 tricky riddles that will make even smartest pants swallow their pride.
