Waitress outwits mensa members

Recommended Posts

Mensa is an organization whose members have an IQ of 140

or higher.


A few years ago, there was a Mensa convention in San

Francisco. and several members lunched at a local cafe.

While dining, they discovered that their saltshaker

contained pepper and their pepper shaker was full of salt.


How could they swap the contents of the bottles without

spilling, and using only the implements at hand? Clearly

this was a job for Mensa!


The group debated and presented ideas, and finally came up

with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an

empty saucer. They called the waitress over to dazzle her

with their solution.


"Ma'am," they said, "we couldn't help but notice that the

pepper shaker contains salt and the salt shaker..."


"Oh," the waitress interrupted. "Sorry about that." She

unscrewed the caps of both bottles and switched them.
