Your morning heart-starter: Two men are working at a construction site

Every morning we’ll bring you something to challenge your brain, exercise your memory or give you a laugh!

Two men are working at a construction site together, just a week after having an angry row – and they can’t wait to challenge each other.

Finally, at lunch break, they confront one another. One man, obviously stronger, says to the other: “See that wheelbarrow? I’m willing to bet $100 that you can’t wheel something to that cone and back and that I can’t do twice as far. Do we have a bet?”

The other man shakes his hand and agrees, but he has a plan formulating in the back of his mind. He looks at the objects lying around: a pile of 400 bricks, a steel beam, the 10 men that had gathered around to watch, his pickup truck, a stack of concrete mix, and he makes up his mind, finalising his plan.

“All right,” he says, and reveals his object to his opponent.

That night the strong man goes home feeling very embarrassed and $100 poorer. What did the other man choose?

We’ll post the answer to the riddle in the comments later today.
