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!

(Why do I get the feeling I haven't hung around in enough bars to be able to recognise this item?)

Mr Smith, did you, Mr Brown and 'the boys' use the item when Mr Brown returned with it to the bar?

Mrs Smith, have you ever used this item?

Mr Brown, were you enthusiastic about the thought of having this item at the bar? Was that why you agreed to go and get it?
