Name of first cuddly toy or name of first pet...? Not sure whether you're after questions that need a short answer or require a longer one?!

How come you press harder on a remote control when you know the battery is dead?

If an orange is orange, why isn't a lime called a green or a lemon called a yellow?

What color would a smurf turn if you choked it?

Why is Greenland called green when it is covered in ice?

Why does a gynecologist leave the room when you undress?

If a person owns a piece of land, do they own it all the way down to the center of the earth?

Why can't woman put their mascara on with their mouth closed?

Why are they called stairs inside but steps outside?

Why is there a light in the fridge but not in the freezer?

i thought you were taking the piss, but according to Wikipedia you're right!

When Erik returned to Iceland after his exile had expired, he is said to have brought with him stories of "Greenland". Erik deliberately gave the land a more appealing name than "Iceland" in order to lure potential settlers. He explained, "people would be attracted to go there if it had a favorable name".[6] He knew that the success of any settlement in Greenland would need the support of as many people as possible. His salesmanship proved successful, as many people (especially "those Vikings living on poor land in Iceland" and those that had suffered a "recent famine") became convinced that Greenland held great opportunity.

Ask them, then, for their brief understanding of what they think risk management entails.
