Due to the success of the lateral puzzles in the "A riddle" thread, it seems appropriate to start a lateral thinking puzzle thread.

A rule of thumb to follow would be to allow those who do not know the answer to figure it out for themselves. If you happen to know the answer, please keep it to yourself and let the others have the fun.

Please feel free to start one at any point. It is not necessary to wait for one to finish before starting another one.

Have fun!

To Mrs Smith

"Did you decide to withdraw your allegation when Mr smith walked in the room? Or when Mr Brown walked in the room? Or when constable Spike walked in the room?"

"Mr. Brown, did Mrs. Smith seem interested in your "attention" and then change her mind?"

To Mrs Smith

"Did you decide to withdraw your allegation when Mr smith walked in the room?{YES, WELL SLIGHTLY BEFORE, WHEN I FOUND OUT MY HUSBAND WAS FIGHTING WITH MR. BROWN.} Or when Mr Brown walked in the room? { I JUST TOLD YOU} Or when constable Spike walked in the room?" {NO}


Constable Spike takes this opportunity to speak.
"Inspector, might I interject for a moment.? There appear to be some very confusing testimony.
Let me recap what has happened to this point. Mrs. Smith enters your office claiming to have been raped. She is sporting a black eye. I wonder when she acquired that bruise? Mr. Smith has stated he gave her the injury intentionally, and that he was not present when Mrs. Smith was raped. When did the alleged rape happen? If indeed she was even raped. There seems to be a question to the validity of that claim.
Mr. Smith is ready to kill Mr. Brown (Mr. Smiths own words). He has stated for the record that he is positive that Mr. Brown has slept with his wife. How can he be so positive? So far Mr. Brown has said little to shed any light on the situation. As a matter of fact he was somewhat evasive. Sorry to interrupt, please carry on inspector."

Mrs Smith are you taking any medication? Were you aware of what you were doing when you slept with Mr Brown? Did you honestly think it was rape to begin with, or were you going to lie to try and save your marriage?

Mr Brown were you trying to exact a revenge upon Mr Smith?

"Mrs. Smith, what is your maiden name?"

"Mr. Smith, you said you "absolutely certian" Mr. Brown slept with your wife. Did you walk in on them? IF so is that when you gave Mrs. Smith the black eye? If that isn't how you found out, Did someone tell you they slept together?"

Mrs Smith are you taking any medication? {NO} Were you aware of what you were doing when you slept with Mr Brown?{NO...YES, I THOUGHT IT WAS SOMEONE ELSE.} Did you honestly think it was rape to begin with, or were you going to lie to try and save your marriage? {I HONESTLY THOUGHT IT WAS RAPE WHEN I LEFT TO COME TO THE STATION}

Mr Brown were you trying to exact a revenge upon Mr Smith?{NO}

"Mrs. Smith, what is your maiden name?" (Irrelevant, besides it needs to be a yes or no question)

"Mr. Smith, you said you "absolutely certian" Mr. Brown slept with your wife. Did you walk in on them? {NO} IF so is that when you gave Mrs. Smith the black eye?{I GAVE HER THAT BLACK EYE WHEN I REALIZED WHAT THEY HAD DONE} If that isn't how you found out, Did someone tell you they slept together?" {YES, WELL NOT EXACTLY, BUT IT WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS SAID}
