I'll start you off with a good one. It's an old one, but a classic!

A farmer is trying to cross a river. He is taking with him a rabbit, carrots and a fox, and he has a small raft. He can only bring 1 item a time across the river becuase his raft can only fit either the rabbit, the carrots or the fox. How does he cross the river. (You can assume that the fox does not eat the rabbit if the man is present, you can also assume that the fox and the rabbit are not trying to escape and run away)

First. bring the rabbit across.
Then, he goes back and takes the fox across.
When at the other side, leave the fox and bring back the rabbit.
Then leave the rabbit and take across the carrots.
Then go back to pick up the rabbit.

All right, Sappp, that was an easy one. Try this.

Three men order drinks at a bar. Their total bill is $25, so they each decide to pitch in $10. The waitress returns with their $5. Each man pockets $1 and leaves the last $2 as a (IMO, cheap) tip for the waitress.

So, each man in essence paid $9. 9x3 is $27, plus the extra $2 they left as a tip equals $29.

The question is: What happened to the missing dollar? ;)
