Riddle: Animals on the bed
You walk into a room and see a bed. On the bed there are two dogs, four cats, a giraffe, five cows and a duck. There are also three chickens flying above the bed. How many legs are on the floor?
Since all of the animals are on the bed and no other furniture is mentioned in the room, there are six legs on the floor. Four legs from the bed and your own two legs as you stand in the room, amazed that someone managed to get so many animals onto a bed. And the ceiling must be vaulted to fit a giraffe. Also, who’s on clean-up duty?
The suggested answer is obviously wrong :-)
It ignores the clue the riddle starts with, all those animals on the bed. The animals are on the bed because it is nice warm, and it's warm because it is a heated water bed, which does not have legs. Also keep in mind that you are not standing, but walking, and one foot is raised most of the time. Therefore, the correct answer is one:-)
