    Perplexing Puzzles & Tantilizing Teasers

    I bought this book awhile ago, because I am very fond of solving riddles and puzzles (even though I'm not very good at it). I thought I should start a game.

    I'll post a riddle, puzzle, or teaser and let's see who can get it first. If you do get it right, you can post a riddle, puzzle, or teaser. Of course, you can pass your turn to someone else or I'll post one for you.

    Oh, the only rule is that do not post jokes. Riddles and jokes do get confused, but riddles have more a thought process and jokes are for lulz.

    Let's begin!:

    Mr. Bushyhead's Problem
    Mr. Bushyhead was driving through a strange town when he decided to stop, park his car, and get a haircut. He asked a boy where he could find a barbershop.
    "We have only two barbers in this town," said the boy. "One of them has a shop at the north end of Main Street and the other has a shop at the south end."
    Mr. Bushyhead walked north on Main Street until he reached one of the barbershops. It looked as if it hadn't been cleaned in months. Cut hair was all over the floor. The barber himself needed a shave and his haircut looked terrible.

    Mr. Bushyhead walked in the other direction until he came to the second barbershop. It looked neat and cheerful inside. The floor had been swept. The barber was neatly dressed, freshly shaved, and had a neat haircut.
    Why did Mr. Bushyhead walk back to the first barbershop to get his haircut?

    Think about the clues that were given.

    There are 2 barbershops in the town. First barbershop had a mess all over the place, and the barber had a bad shave and haircut.

    Second barbershop was very neat, and the barber had a clean cut and shave.

    I know!

    Okay, I'll go. It's because he assumed that the neat-haired barber gave the messy-shop barber the bad haircut, and the messy-shop barber was the one who gave the neat-haired barber his good haircut, since there are only 2 barbers in town and they must cut each other's hair.

    A man was just doing his job when his suit ripped. He died 3 minutes later.

    Why?

    Oh, I know, but don't have another puzzle. So I will just say the answer reminds me of something said on a yesterland DL attraction.
