A little Brainteaser...By: Staceym [26November09 9:21PM] 102 posts 

OK so this isn't actually an original, but I have used this one a couple of times in the past and it never fails to get a smile if people don't get the answer straight away.
"What word actually becomes longer when you remove a letter from it?"
If you don't get it straight away, then enjoy puzzling over it for a while.
If you work out the answer then post it here, if not then hopefully I'll remember to come back in a few days and post it!

I know the answer, but I'd better not give it away just yet (I've seen this one before rather than brilliant working out on my part )
Let's just say the answer is a type of settee or couch... a bit of a spoiler but hopefully not 100% obvious!
Anymore Stacey?

I like that answer, that's a good one!
On the subject of brainteasers, here is another little one.
Again it's a bit of a classic brainteaser but nevertheless if you've not seen it before then it does require a little bit of thinking, perhaps, to arrive at the correct answer.
So here goes:
what gets wetter as it dries?
As I say it may be instantly obvious but if not it should provide at least a minute or so of enjoyment to get the better of this little brainteaser.

I hadn't seen that one before so it did actually take me a little while to come up with the answer, which I believe is a TOWEL... that's the only thing I can think of anyway.
Keep the brainteasers coming, they are fun, I might even try and come up with some more myself though I think I'm better at solving puzzles rather than setting them!!!
