Breakfast in Bed (courtesy of Mad Ade) on

Published in Brain Teasers

One night Hugh was at work at the recycling plant when he received an unexpected telephone call from a neighbor, listened to what the neighbor said, slammed down the phone and left work and drove straight home. On entering his house Hugh crept upstairs and found his wife in bed with a stranger. He wasn't angry but he was surprised. In fact he crept back down stairs and made his wife some breakfast, which he took up for her to eat in bed.

Why was Hugh so calm about finding his wife in bed with someone he had never met before?


The stranger was a baby; Hugh's wife had gone into labor while he was at work. The neighbor had called to let him know.
