logic puzzles

A carrot, a football scarf and 3 buttons were found in a field. If no one put them there on purpose, how did they get there?

Re: logic puzzles

I suspect the buttons are mushrooms, and the carrot is a carrot, but I don't know how a football scarf might grow......:\

Heh so true, We get a LOT of snow. And my driveway is quite big so it takes forever to do. We have a snowblower though so Dad always does it Muahah. I love the cold though Much more then the heat. BLEH Heat stinks.

Anyway I get the puzzle now XD HAha talk about feeling stupid for not getting that one. It was a good!
