Lateral Thinking Puzzle!

Okay, so I absolutely love lateral thinking puzzles. They are so great! So I decided that I want to do a weekly lateral thinking puzzle. I'll post the puzzle, and you can email me or comment and tell me your guesses (:

Sound fun? Good. (;

Okayy, so the first one is...

A man and his son are in a car crash. The father is killed and the child is take to the hospital gravely injured. When he gets there, the surgeon says, "I can't operate on this boy - for he is my son!" How can that possibly be?

Ooh, I love these! Hmm. The kid was adopted?

Chelsea said...

Oh, just saw Ellie's. Her's is probably right. I didn't think of that; guess I'm sexist. :p

Kelsey said...

Ditto with Ellie. His mother is my guess.
