A New Riddle

Back to Forum: Coffeehouse
  • Geoffreyk

    each of the three men paid $9.

    9*3=27

    the bellboy kept $2

    27-2= 25

    The bill was $25, so everything comes out fine.

    The problem is in assuming that $30 has anything to do with it, and then mistakenly adding $2 instead of subtracting $2.

    The answer is of course "Tom Hanks".

    And if you remember that gag on the original riddle thread, you've been here too long (as I have).

    LOL.

    Though of course the first rule of the original riddle thread is that you don't talk about the original riddle thread.
