Differing Interpretations...Need a little laugh?

Some Sunday diversions...
The following questions and answers were passed on to me via email. I hope the originator won't mind a sharing - I'd thank you in person but your name is unclear. The answers are classic and I'm sure I've seen some of them before, but in one sense, they are absolutely correct. 
Interpretation is the key because not everyone 'reads' a question in the same way.  Just as not everyone reads a novel in the same way. 

Apart from wrapping some Christmas gifts today, I'll be spending some time doing the edits on The Taexali Game that my editor - Jeff Gardiner- has sent back for me to decide on. His suggestions for a few changes to the content are spot on, and that's because , through his editor's lens, his interpretation is different from mine. He has spotted a few weaknesses that definitely need to be addressed. My thanks go to Jeff for that...
even though it's more work for me! (*insert smiley face here*) 

Hopefully at least one of these will generate a smile for you!

What would your answers have been? And would they have made someone laugh like these made me chuckle?
