    Riddles can you figure them out?

    1. A man is at work and wants to go home. However, he will not go home because a man wearing a mask is waiting there for him. What does the first man do for a living?

    2. A drifter has learned that he can get enough tobacco from 5 cigarette butts to make himself a cigarette. How many cigarettes can he make from 25 cigarette butts?

    3. Why canít you take a picture of a man with a wooden leg in Grundy Center, IA?

    4. A train 1 mile long, traveling 1 mile a minute, enters a mile-long tunnel. How many minutes does it take for the train to go through the tunnel?
