Lateral Puzzles » Active Lateral Thinking Puzzles » Dead men, albatrosses and elevators - a collection of classic laterals - PLEASE don't post these again « Previous Next »

These puzzles are the real classic lateral thinking puzzles. Do not post them again - they'll either get ignored, or solved immediately. Whichever, it's no fun for you or anyone else. It's not that they're not great puzzles - it's just that we've all heard them before. There's no need for us to hear them again.

Anyway - have a good look through. You never know, they might inspire you. But don't post them again.
