Does her movement create a squeaking sound? a farting sound? a ripping sound? some other relevant sound? create a visual effect that is amusing?

She = Human, Adult, Female?
He = Human, Adult, Male?

Would a normal person find the situation amusing? Depends on your sense of humor. MANY people certainly would, if they realized what was humourous about it.

Does her movement create a squeaking sound? a farting sound? a ripping sound? some other relevant sound? None of these. create a visual effect that is amusing? Closest, but beware of a possible FA.

She = Human, Adult, Female?
He = Human, Adult, Male? Yes to all.

Did he like her?

Was her moving changing anything? If so, was the result rather positive for her? Negative? Positive for him? Negative for him?

Email it to me so I can tell you if it's right or not. This was something I found on the internet (modified by me to make it into a lateral puzzle, of course), so it's perfectly reasonable that you could have stumbled across it as well (I think it's fairly well-traveled online).

But I encourage the rest of you NOT to go looking for it, Google or otherwise. And most important of all, if you KNOW the solution already, or if something rings a bell LONG before the rest of us have gotten there, PLEASE don't $poil, but send me an email instead. Thanks!

Did she move by simply rearranging her body's position in one seat? Or did she move by standing up and switching seats? This is closest. She's most likely sliding from one seat to an adjacent one, but she's definitely changing seats. That's the sense of "move" I was looking for.

Does the FA concern the word "room"?
Is she outdoors?
Is she in an inside area that is too large to be called a room?
Or, is he not in the same area with her at all?

Hello again!

Is there something behind/beside/in front of the woman that visually adds to the humor?
Is the timing of her moving relevant?
Is she moving because of this laughing man?

Are they in a church? School? Sporting Event? Airport or Airplane? Train or Train Station? Other vehicle? Hospital? Social Event? Is this even relevant?

A pregnant woman is sitting on a bus. Every time she changes seats, a man laughs harder. Several advertizing signs are involved, but it's only the presence of the woman (and the fact that she was pregnant) that makes them funny.

Are some of the signs about pregnancy? For products a pregnant woman might use? About contraceptive devices? Did the man find some of them funny because they could be interpreted as puns? Because of the way they could be interpreted as referring to her physical state?

Could some of the signs be interpreted as being about the shape of her body? Her belly in particular? Stretch marks? The fact that she will soon bring another living human being into the world?

Is something along the lines of "'doing x' for two" relevant to the puns? Balloons? Are any references to sexual acts relevant?

To make things easier, there are four separate ads, and they go in a particular sequence (least to most titillating, roughly speaking). Try to figure out what each one says.

Are they about giving child birth? Do they say something like - "There will be a great one coming, and another, and another and another."

Having sex?

Are all four ads from the same company? No. They're for four different products that have NOTHING at all to do with each other.

Are they about giving child birth? Do they say something like - "There will be a great one coming, and another, and another and another." Close enough. Ad number 1 says "The Doublemint Twins Are Coming!" I'll give you that one.

Having sex? Yope.

Mentioning her weight? Yope. water loss? storm drain/sewage breaking No to rest.

Bear in mind that NONE of these ads were intended to be about sex/pregnancy/childbirth. They're just ads for random products that happen to be worded in such a way as to result in all sorts of unintentional double entendres.

Do the ads involve..
fanny packs? Bum bag?
Private dicks?
Biggie hamburgers?
rubbers? This one is close, but the ad isn't for rubber boots/galoshes. It's something else, and there's a little more to it. No or noish to rest.
Blinders?

A particular brand of condoms? Some other rubber product that could be read or interpreted as condoms?

Are either of the final two ads about any of the following, and if so, which ones?

Food
Drink
Medical products
Books
Newspapers

Is either ad simply informational, or are they both selling something? For example, is one or both about, say, donating to a cause?

A particular brand of condoms? Some other rubber product that could be read or interpreted as condoms? This one, and this is ad #4, by the way.

Are either of the final two ads about any of the following, and if so, which ones?

Food Ad #3 is about this.
Drink
Medical products
Books
Newspapers No to rest.

Is either ad simply informational, or are they both selling something? For example, is one or both about, say, donating to a cause? All four ads are selling products.

balloons? The stretching goo you blow through a tube? something that keeps you safe? protects you? from a spill? If so, what kind of spill? like spilled milk? or a fall? No to all. Also, there's a second word as well as "rubber" that's key to the pun here.

Ad 3:

Bananas
Hot dogs
Foot longs None of these.

*********************BLOOPER**********************
Ad #3 is NOT about food. But it's not about any of the other things in JenBurdoo's post, either.


Something else that can be interpreted as a sexual organ? But ad #3 IS about this. Think about particular WORDS that could be the source of the unintentional humor. Or a sexual act? sexual protection?

ad 4: inner tubes? Nope. Keep trying. It's something we use every day, even if we don't always think about it. And as I mentioned, there's a second word involved in the pun as well as "rubber."

You guys are close enough that I'm going to go ahead and post the

**********************SPOILER********************

This is a well-traveled joke/urban legend that has taken many forms on the internet. The following is one popular telling:

Australian Court Docket 12659, Case of the Pregnant Lady

A lady about 8 months pregnant got on a bus. She noticed a man opposite her was smiling at her. She immediately moved to another seat. This time the man's smile turned into a grin, so she move again. The man seemed more amused. When she moved for the fourth time, the man burst out laughing, she complained to the driver and he had the man arrested. (Only in Australia)

The case came up in court. The judge asked the man, (about 20 years old), what he had to say for himself.

The man replied, "Well your Honor, it was like this: When the lady got on the bus, I couldn't help but notice her condition. She sat under a sweets sign that said, THE DOUBLEMINT TWINS ARE COMING, and I grinned.

Then she moved and sat under a sign that said, LOGAN'S LINIMENT WILL REDUCE THE SWELLING, I had to smile.

Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign than said, WILLIAMS BIG STICK DID THE TRICK, I could hardly contain myself.

But, your Honor, when she moved the fourth time and sat under a sign that said, GOODYEAR RUBBER COULD HAVE PREVENTED THIS ACCIDENT, I just lost it!"

The case was dismissed.


Thanks for playing, everybody!
