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!

So Mrs. Smith when you engaged in sexual activity with Mr. Brown you believed him to be Mr. Smith, your husband?

Mrs. Smith did you invite Mr. Brown into your bed not knowing his identity at the time?

Mr. Brown were you hired by Mr. Smith to perform a duty at the Smith residence?

Mr. Smith am I correct in the assumption that you knew Mr. Brown was to be at your residence?

Mr. Brown were you delivering something to the Smith Residence? Picking something up? Repairing something? Committing a crime at the behest of Mr. Smith?

Mr. Smith did you expect Mr. Brown to have any contact at all with Mrs. Smith during his time in your home?
