A fellow and his wife living in Houston, Texas, where the
people are all patriots, were blessed with the birth of
twins, two identical girls. These twins were born on the 4th
of July, and the father, being patriotic, said to his wife,
“We will name them Liberty and Justice, after the pledge of
His wife said, “Are you nuts? You can’t have girls going
through life with names like Liberty and Justice. We are
going to name them regular girl’s names like Mary or Jane”.
Well, the argument went on for about a month, when a compro-
mise was reached. They would each name one of the girls. The
man chose Liberty and the wife picked Elizabeth.
As the girls grew, they were so identical, they kept pulling
tricks on people who couldn’t tell them apart.
Finally, when they were about 18, a young man took interest
in them. He would take one out on a date but he was never
sure which one he was with.
He decided he would marry at least one of them, but he wasn’t
sure which one he would marry.
He went to the girls father and explained his quandary.
“I love your daughters and want to marry one of them, but I
can’t tell them apart, so I will leave it up to you…
Give me Liberty or give me Beth.”😎
Answer: EMH Mark I!
The EMH (Emergency Medical Hologram) Mark I, the same model as “Star Trek: Voyager’s” Doctor, was played in this cameo appearance by Robert Picardo. The Borg have boarded the Enterprise, and Dr. Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden) activates the EMH program in a desperate measure to stall for time. The EMH promptly responds with his usual line, “Please state the nature of the medical emergency.” Upon being informed that the emergency involves twenty Borg about to break through the door, the EMH objects, “I’m a doctor, not a doorstop,” a variation on Dr. McCoy’s classic line. Beverly suggests that he “do a dance,” or “tell a story.” I, personally, think the analgesic line was much better – though I doubt the Borg were impressed.
“Wanna ride on my Segway?”
Five guests, Mr. Rose, Ms. Tulip, Sir Daisy, Lord Pansy and Miss Lily, were all invited to an exclusive party at Brainteaser Mansion. However, during the long, dark night, the owner of the spectacular mansion, Mr. Death, was found dead in his office. The trouble is, every member of the party went into his office, each at a different time, with a different weapon, motive and clue that incriminated them. From their statements below, can you work out who killed him?
Mr. Rose’s statement: “I didn’t do it. I never left a footprint because a woman did. I entered the room before the person who took in the poison. I must say though, she was in there for a quarter of an hour before someone else went in!”
Ms. Tulip’s statement: “Okay, I admit it! I took in the revolver, even though my motive wasn’t revenge. A man entered the room after me and his motive was either rage or blackmail.”
Sir Daisy’s statement: “All I know is, I did leave a fingerprint, but that doesn’t explain why Miss Lily lost a hair, does it? Oh yes! The person who entered seventy minutes before me took in the lead pole.”
Lord Pansy’s statement: “I entered after a woman, who did not take in rope because the last person to visit him did. I was in there for more than thirty-five minutes confronting Mr. Death with my motive, which, may I say, wasn’t greed or blackmail.”
Miss Lily’s statement: “Yes, you caught me! My motive was jealousy, but it wasn’t as bad as that man’s blackmail motive, who entered at five minutes past nine. I entered before another man who left the incriminating clue of the blood drop.”
The person who entered the room at half past ten is the real killer. Who did it?
Ms. Tulip, Revolver, Greed, Footprint, 11:25
Sir Daisy, Rope, Rage, Fingerprint, 11:55
Lord Pansy, Lead pole, Revenge, Blood, 10:45
Miss Lily, Poison, Jealousy, Hair, 10:30
Therefore, Miss Lily was the real killer.
The hint provides the first names.
