I spent the last hour perfecting how to word a specific lateral puzzle. After I thought I had the perfect wording, I quickly realized it would go much too fast to be any fun.

What did I realized?

Sometimes I think I have a great puzzle until I realize that the first question will be H?A?M? and that will practically spoyl it right there. Anything like this?

Sometimes I think I have a great puzzle until I realize that the first question will be H?A?M? and that will practically spoyl it right there. Anything like this? thats it exactly.

My puzzle was going to be:

A man was rushing to catch his flight when we noticed a mysterious package on his doorstep. After opening and examining the contents of the package, he knew his flight was going to be delayed.

What was in the package?


first question would be: man=h/a/m? and I'd have to answer no/yes/yes.

Was I right? Is it basically over at this point?

Feel free to solve it and/or ask additional questions to the puzzle above.

So the man rushing to catch his flight is not a human?

Did the package contain kryptonite?
yes - *spoiler* he=Superman .. Problem was, I couldn't say he's human when he's techincally an alien. Thanks for humoring me. It would have been a decent puzzle if not for that default first question *smile*.
