I'm after similar logic/riddle questions to the following four part one, anyone able to post some? Mainly just find these fun, not taking the 'science' parts seriously. (answers to these questions in the post)
How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?
How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?
The King of the Forest is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend except one. Which animal does not attend?

"1. The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and close the door.
This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way.
2. Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door.
This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.
3. The Elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there.
This tests your memory.
4. Correct Answer: You swim across. All the crocodiles are attending the animal conference.
This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.
Note: According to sources, Anderson Consulting Worldwide (now "Accenture"), said around 90% of the professionals they tested got all questions wrong. But many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting reportedly said this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four year old."
