If you know this one, don't say anything - I want to cherish this.<P>A woman goes into a restaurant, orders albatross soup, and tastes it. She then leaves and shoots herself.
Explain.<P>Usual rules - one question at a time per person, etc etc.

Yay, my favourite lateral thinking puzzle! Of course, that means I can't play, so I'll just go watch the Powerpuff Girls instead.<P>------------------

it wouldn't have been irrelevant if it was like the head of someone she knew. but then again, if she still tasted the soup, then she'd be REALLY tapped.<P>Was she related to the Ancient Mariner? just kidding.<P>But i wonder if the curse of the albatross still applies....that is one i would want answered.

Was tasting albatross soup the last thing on her list of things to do before she died so that as soon as she did she thought to herself "Wow, I've done just about everything except for shooting myself. I think I'll do that right now!" and she left the restaurant and shot herself?

Did tasting the soup remind her of Monty Python's albatross sketch so that she couldn't think of anything else and she shot herself to try to stop herself from thinking about it?

^^ Did she kill herself because she had made a bet with Anh Minh that albatross tasted like chicken? Or perhaps, was "she disappointed in a way" because she had taken a really big loan from a dangerous person to make the bet? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P>KN
