Did you make it to work on time?

This is the first Monday after Daylight Savings Time and everyone is getting acclimated to the feel of the new time. Some may find it a little difficult to start the work week after losing that entire one hour of sleep….so here are a few brain teasers that I found that may help you to get that brain started up and running again.


  1. 1. A man stands on one side of a river, his dog on the other. The man calls his dog, who immediately crosses the river without getting wet and without using a bridge or a boat. How did the dog do it?
  2. 2. A sundial has the fewest moving parts of any timepiece. Which has the most?
  3. What is unusual about the following words: revive, banana, grammar, voodoo, assess, potato, dresser, uneven?
  4. Put a coin into an empty bottle and insert a cork into the neck. How can you remove the coin without removing the cork or breaking the bottle?
  5.  Two boxers are in a match scheduled for 12 rounds. (Pure boxing only – no kicking, UFC takedowns, or anything else). One of the boxers gets knocked out after only six rounds, yet no man throws a punch. How is this possible?


Ready for the answers?


  1. The river was frozen.
  2. An hourglass, with thousands of grains of sand.
  3. Take the first letter of each word and place it at the end. It will spell the same word backwards.
  4. Push the cork down into the bottle. Then shake the coin out.
  5. Both boxers are female.
