Here's one for you:

Q20. A man stands on one side of a wide river. He calls his dog, who is on the opposite side of the river and the dog comes over to him. When the dog arrives he hasn't got wet and didn't use a bridge or boat, nor was he carried over. How did the dog manage to stay dry?

Well I'm guessing that either the dog is called 'who is on the opposite side of the river' :D , or the river is frozen over and the dog just walked across the ice.
