The Cellar Door

Last week's answer: Jack and Jill are goldfish. During a break-and-enter, a robber knocked over their glass fishbowl which shattered on the ground. Hence upon the arrival of the police, they lay there, dead, amongst glass and water.

Thanks to everyone who took a stab on it! Several of you got it right, so nice work =).
And thanks to Broda for submitting the following puzzle as well: Make the equation 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 555 true with only one line. The answer, you add a / on any of the plus signs to make it 545 + 5 + 5 = 555 which of course is correct. Onto our next puzzle!

Johnny's mother warned him to never ever open the cellar door, or he would see things that he was never meant to see. But one day while his mother was out, Johnny opened the cellar door anyway. What did he see?

  2. Been thinking about this one for a while now lol. Skipping over stuff like xmas presents because they wouldnt be there all year. I'm going to have to go with a completely evil answer lol. He was never meant to see the outside world and was kept in the cellar by his mother.

  15. Either he saw the cellar, or the room exiting the cellar! I'm gonna go with the latter.
