Seniors Test

Euphemisms and terms for old people include, old people (worldwide usage), seniors (American usage), senior citizens (British and American usage), older adults (in the social sciences), the elderly, and elders (in many cultures including the cultures of aboriginal people). Source: Wikipedia

Something for seniors to do to keep those "aging" grey cells active:
  1. Johnny's mother had three children. The first child was named April. The second child was named May. What was the third child's name?
  2. There is an assistant at the butcher shop, he is five feet ten inches tall and he wears size 13 sneakers. What does he weigh?
  3. Before Mt. Everest was discovered, what was the highest mountain in the world?
  4. How much dirt is there in a hole that measures two feet by three feet by four feet?
  5. What word in the English language is always spelled incorrectly?
  6. Billy was born on December 28th, yet his birthday is always in the summer. How is this possible?
  7. In California, you cannot take a picture of a man with a wooden leg. Why not?
  8. What was the President's name in 1975?
  9. If you were running a race, and you passed the person in 2nd place, what place would you be in now?
  10. Which is correct to say, "The yolk of the egg are white" or "The yolk of the egg is white"?
  11. If a farmer has 5 haystacks in one field and 4 haystacks in the other field, how many haystacks would he have if he combined them all in another field?
Answers on Saturday!

  18. My pet rock, Seymour, wants to answer these:

    1. Johnny
    2. The meat he sells.
    3. Mt. Everest
    4. None until they fill in the hole widdit
    5. incorrectly
    6. Southern Hemispherics.
    7. Until a wooden leg is fitted with a camera, I reckon that has a lot to do widdit.
    8. Check the records he's spent millions to conceal.
    9. I'd never pass the person in 2nd place, unless my fat assed keeper is the one carrying me while doing the passing...and I can guarantee you that ain't happening.
    10. The yoke's on you if it's white...
    11. He'd have wasted a lot of time taking the individual haystacks to make one 9 times bigger haystack in the other field, which would make him look really stupid, unless he's doing Common Core farming, in which case the purple warthog told him a tale of two azelias which would equate playing a Beatles song backwards resulting in lyrics "devil bunnies devil bunnies, I snort the banana!", which alfalfa didn't do during one "Our Gang" episode.
