Frederick’s Epitaph

Frederick died after a long and productive life of 87 years, but this epitaph was written on his headstone:

Frederick lived a good long life,
He loved his children and his wife,

He was honest, kind and deserved nothing but praise,
Even if he only had twenty-one birthdays.

How is this possible?

He was born on February 29th in a leap year. Consequently, in his 87 years, he only witnessed twenty-one of his actual birthdays. The other years there was no February 29th.

The Case of Wesley and the Broken Window

Wesley’s mom discovered a broken window in the living room and went to ask Wesley about it. Wesley told her he had been playing Monopoly with his friend Cindy. She asked him what his last roll had been and he said, “A one”. She immediately knew he was lying.

How?

Monopoly has two dice, and the lowest number two dice can roll is 2. The window repair came out of Wesley’s allowance and he stopped throwing his baseball in the house.
