Riddle: A woman shoots her husband, then holds him underwater for five minutes. Next, she hangs him. Right after, they enjoy a lovely dinner. Can you explain?
The trick to the riddle is working out another meaning for the word “shoot”. Of course, we all assume that “shoot” means to fire a weapon. But if you thought this woman had already killed her husband within the first line then you were never going to answer correctly.
It may be tough to in lockdown for marriages, but this woman definitely didn’t shoot her husband.
The events are as follows:
1. She shot her husband (with a camera)
2. She then placed him (his picture) in water for five minutes (the process needed to develop a photo)
3. She then hung her husband (his picture) as the final part of developing a photo.
Answer: She took a picture of him and developed it in her darkroom.
