1) You meet a meat cutter who is named Sam. He cuts prime ribs, stew meat, ribs, and many other cuts of meat. He wears size 38" jeans and is about 5 foot 3. Sam's shirts are oversized and baggy, and his shoes look about size 13. What does he weigh?

2) What is this thing God doesn't know about, that a king needs, a poor man has, but if you eat it you die?

3) A king needs to hand over his throne to one of his sons - so he decides to run a horse race, and the son with the slower horse will be the winner and gain the throne. Each son feared the other would cheat and run his horse slower than it is capable of running, so they asked the court jester for advice - and they were given the answer. What did the jester tell them?
