Why Did Dave Die?

Dave and Brad, two popular politicians, met at a club to discuss the overthrow of their party leader. They each ordered a vodka on the rocks. Brad downed his and ordered another. He then drank his second in a gulp and decided to wait before he ordered a third. Meanwhile, Dave, who was sipping his drink, suddenly fell forward dead. Both men were setup for an assassination.

Why did Dave die and Brad live?

8 guesses to Why Did Dave Die?

  • If you watched this week’s episode of MONK, that may give you a clue.

  • Gretchen

    Dave died by other means (i.e. gunshot, stabbing, etc.).

  • Dude

    Nope Gretchen, that’s not it. It’s quite an ingenious answer, keep trying.

  • Ty

    Was one guy allergic to his drink?

  • Paul

    Sorry Mr. Riddle Dude, but I’ve never watched Monk. I would guess, being the slick politician he was, Brad set himself up for assassination. In the mean time, Dave’s assassin managed to plan and carryout his evil plan by pouring into Dave’s vodka a Saxotoxin, an odorless, tasteless poison that works in seconds and is completely untraceable. Dave’s assassin was…Brad, the double-crossing republican. mwuah ha ha ha hah hah.

  • Gretchen

    Perhaps one of them was the party leader himself.
    Either Dave was overthrown via death, or Brad caught on to the plot and decided to kill Dave before being overthrown.

  • Gretchen

    the poison was in the ice!

  • Joey

    Bingo Gretchen!!! The killer put the poison in the ice cubes. Brad downed his quickly so the poison didn’t have a chance to get into his drink because the ice didn’t melt. Dave, who was sipping his drink allowed the poison to get into the drink.

    Congratulations, you’re the winner of the day!!!!!
