It’s entirely possible to recognize someone that you’ve never freaking met in your entire life, just as long as they have something special that makes them stand out:
“A man dies and goes to heaven. There are thousands of other people there, and they are all naked. He looks around to see if he can recognize someone. He sees a couple and somehow realizes immediately that they are Adam and Eve. How come?”
Answer: He recognized Adam and Eve as they were the only people without navels.
Most people will share things with their bartenders that they’d never share with anyone else. But this guy got the scare of his life from his bartender.
“A man walks into a bar and asks the bartender to give him a glass of water. The bartender starts to look for something under the bar. All of a sudden, he brings out a gun and points it at the man. The man says, “Thank you,” and leaves.”
Answer: The man had hiccups, and the bartender decided to scare the hiccups away instead of giving him water.
Egyptian Murder Mystery
This riddle is so mind-boggling and fishy that you’ll swear it rewrote history somehow. But the solution is simpler than you think:
“Anthony and Cleopatra are found dead on the floor of a villa in Egypt. There are pieces of broken glass nearby. The only witness is a dog. They were not poisoned and there were no marks on their bodies. How did they die?”
Answer: Anthony and Cleopatra were two goldfish whose fish tank was broken by the dog.
