    I made this one up myself, but maybe you have more (hopefully try to make one up too).

    Question 1:
    I have a total of 8 unopened pudding pops in two boxes. One box has one less pudding pop inside. How is this possible?

    Question 2:
    Then I invite over 8 friends for a party at my house, and my wife gives every single guest a pudding pop, how is it that I have 4 pudding pops remaining at the end of the party?

    is it because you are not counting the opened ones?

    A person walks into a store, and picks up an item. He shows the storekeeper the item and asks the storekeeper "how much for 1?" The storekeeper replies "$2.00". He nods and asks, "how much for 12?" The answer is $4.00. He the says, I'll have 120, thanks" and is charged $6.00
    What was he buying?

    They are still in their wrapper (maybe should have said "whole")

    1. The boxes are different sizes
    2. Not everyone ate theirs

    The pops are unopened, but the boxes are open.

    Some of the guests were not single. :)

    He was buying numbers.

    Yes, some guests were not single, and there was a box of 7 inside another box that only contained 1 (but 8 total).
    (thanks to fascination for part the idea for this one)
