Dinner Riddle

lim peh ka li kong

lim peh have a riddle for you.


I was invited to my friend's house for dinner last weekend. He is not married but with 3 other good friends, they stay in a beautiful condo.

Although 4 of them who stay under one roof are men, the house is really clean and comfortable.

When the dinner started, there were only 4 of them plus lim peh (I was the only guest they invited to the dinner).

The dinner was a buffet style and lim peh was the only one sitting on a stool eating my plate of dinner and the 4 of them were all standing around.

lim peh was very puzzled as there's only 1 stool in the whole house.

I asked my friend Tony, "Oei, Tony ah, why your house only 1 chair huh? Like that everyday you makan all 4 of you sit where?"

Tony replied, ".........."


Can you guess the correct answer?

FAQ: They always eat out?
Ans: No, they eat in most of the time.

FAQ: All of them stand to have dinner?
Ans: No, they do not stand to eat their dinner.

FAQ: 1 sit and the rest stand?
Ans: No, all 4 sit to have their dinner at home.

FAQ: They sit on the floor? on the bed?
Ans: No, they sit on the stool.

FAQ: They take turn to eat their dinner?
Ans: No, they have dinner together at the same time.

SO? Can you make a guess?

    They all have different shifts thus they usually have dinner alone?

    Mm.. wah seh with this 'stool' in picture, really hard to imagine lol.. okie my 3 possible guesses:-

    a) They are 4 men but not all are human so is it 1 men + 3 male dogs thus your friend eat with his dogs on his lap = all on the stool? sounds funnie to imagine :P

    b) Same as (a) except that he keeps 3 male birds?

    c) They are gays (sorrry no offence pls pls juz a crazy thought) and they prob use different 'intimate styles' to eat their dinner? like feed each other on the laps??

    If all four of them are to sit on the stool, one possibility is that they flip the stool over and sit on the legs...which really must have something to do with they being men or...gays? Okay, I admit, "dirty" thoughts are flowing through my mind...which is really the intention of this riddle:P

    I give up...very curious about the answer...

    i think is like squeezing in a crowded van lor. 2 skinny guys sit back to back on the stool.Then the other 2 sit on the skinny guys leg in different angle.

    No la, they each have a normal size ass.

    No, they always eat together

    Very good guess and (3) is very close to the answer.

    You must be an old ginger, you are absolutely right.

    Sorry, wrong guess, see answer from MrDes.

    they turn over the stool and put something like a board on top of it and sit there? XD

    只希望他来我这留留言、发发牢骚,别冒充我到处留无聊的comments 就好。

    “我不做人身攻击”??? 呵呵,那是因为你根本没人身攻击可作!!!除非你想贻笑大方(如那个新怡,洋洋得意地暴露我在Dallas, Texas。)I dont know why you censored the earlier comment so I will paraphrase what I wrote earlier again: 你我都爱上广播电台。但,你听到的是R-级童话故事。我听到的是实事纪录片。真要做人身攻击,呵呵,你倒说说看,是R-级童话故事比较多"人身"可以给你攻击,还是实事纪录片比较多"人身"可以给我攻击?别幼稚了,那是一台广播电台。你不知道吗?我从第一次上广播讲那精彩万分的童话故事时,就知道了。莫非你录制了如此多的实事纪录片,至今还不知那是一个到处广播的广播电台?

  • At Tuesday, January 26, 2010 1:13:00 PM , Anonymous said... come the "unlgam" stool is in your mention beautiful condo?

    1) My guess would be they put a plank over the stool to act as a bench?

    2) They invert the chair and sit on the legs!
