You have to figure out what's going on here and why:

A man walks into a bar and orders a glass of water. The bartender pulls out a gun.

Could this riddle be something to do with the movie "Coyote ugly" ?

Nicely done damnsuicidalroos.

Okay, here's another...and no fair if you have already heard the answer!

A man is walking. The music stops. He dies!

What's going on here?!

A military execution - with drums stopping when the riflemen open fire?

Okay....here's a clue since nobody has even been close so far:

The man is blindfolded

Good luck!

I read the answer to this somewhere, the blindfolded/blind version. It's so convoluted/intricate though, nobody would guess it. =\

Yeah, I asked my friend, and she had heard it before and told me. It is pretty obscure though.

Okay- here it is:

The man was a tight rope walker at the circus. He used the music to know when he was on the rope. It was suppose to be stopped when he reached the end platform, but it stopped early causing him to fall to his death.

Thanks for participating!
