Here are some riddles that are difficult to understand. You may have to spend longer trying to figure out what the solution is.

Riddle 1. Bus

A family was taking a journey through Colorado on a cross-country bus. The parents were bringing their children to visit some relatives who lived in a remote rural area. When the bus reached the foot of a mountain, the children began complaining that they were hungry. The parents decided to get off the bus at the next shop or restaurant they passed.

After a few minutes, they spotted a little roadside diner where they could all grab a bite to eat, so the wife pushed the stop button. The bus pulled over to the side of the road and the family got off, one by one.

Inside the diner, the parents and children were happily eating dinner, when they happened to look up at the TV. There was a news report on the screen that said a terrible accident had just taken place nearby. A bus had been crushed by falling rocks and everybody on board had been killed.

The parents were shocked. It was the same bus they had just been traveling on.


"I wish we had never gotten off that bus..." said the wife.

When the husband heard this, he spat out his food.

"What are you saying?" he shouted. "How could you say that?"

Then he thought for a second.

"Oh, I see," he said. "You're right. We shouldn't have gotten off."

Why did they say this?


Riddle 2. Soldier

At the end of the war in Iraq, an American soldier made a phone call to his parents.

"Hi Mom and Dad," he said. "They'll be sending me home in a few days. When I get home, do you think I could stay with you guys for a while?"

His parents were overjoyed at the news that he would be coming home.

"Of course!" cried his father. "You can live with us for as long as you like."

"One of my buddies here has no place to go"," he said. "Would you mind if he came to stay with us for a while too?"

"That's fine, son" said his mother. "Your friends are always welcome in our house."

"But, there's something you should know", said the son. "My buddy stepped on a land mine. He lost his arms and legs."

There was a long silence on the other end of the line.

"Well, that would be fine for a few days," said his mother. "But caring for a disabled person is hard. It would be a big burden on your father and I. Perhaps you could find him a nursing home or some sort of veteran's hospital instead."

Without another word, the son hung up the phone.

The next day, the parents received a phone call from their son's commanding officer. He regretfully informed them that their son had committed suicide. The parents were devastated.

A few days later, the son's corpse was flown back to the USA and his parents were there to collect the body. When they opened the coffin and saw their son, they both broke down crying.

Why?

Riddle 3. Public Bathroom

I was walking home last night, when I felt the urge to poop. I had to use a creepy, old public bathroom. It was down at the end of a street full of abandoned houses. Very spooky. I went into the bathroom, opened the door of the first stall and peeked inside. There was graffiti on the walls. On the right, it said "This bathroom is haunted" and on the left it said "This writing will change". Creepy, huh?
