A husband is murdered on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

The police questioned the wife and staff and got these alibis:
The Wife said she was sleeping.
The Cook was cooking breakfast.
The Gardener was picking vegetables.
The Maid was getting the mail.
The Butler was cleaning the closet.

The Maid. There is no mail on Sunday

Ha, wrong this time, she could get the mail from the mailbox on Sunday, if she forgot to get it the previous day, a simple explanation to fetch it on a Sunday. Look again.

You've put a twist on a riddle I've heard before.

It's the cook. He wouldn't be cooking breakfast in the afternoon.

Yeah, you got it, the cook is busy with breakfast in the afternoon.

You pour 2 jugs of water into a barrel together, 5 minutes later you realize one of them contained a poison so you hurry back and remove the poisoned water leaving one jugful of clean safe water in the barrel. How is this possible?

That's one I haven't heard before.

I don't know...

blindmelon: Time. At least that's what Bilbo said to Gollum.

What have I got in my pocket?

(Yes, I know this isn't a real riddle but someone might get a kick out of it)

Agilemind: At first I was going to say that the jugs were not emptied but simply stored in the barrel but you used the word "pour" so I don't know. Anyway, I'm actually quite bad at figuring out riddles.

I pour 2 jugs of water into a barrel together. I placed the 2 jugs into the barrel together to each other?, and poured the water into it? Then I removed the one?

Close but not quite. There is nothing in the barrel except the water.

Okay, then one of the jugs had ice, the other liqued, so it can be seperated before the ice melts? (But then again, ice is not always water)

Yes. one or both of the jugs is frozen.

How can you be inside a pool of water, where others and you can see that you are inside the pool of water, but you don't get wet!
