A man is found dead in a phone booth in a pool of blood. The glass on either end of the phone booth is broken and the phone is hanging. Just outside of the phone booth is a bucket and a stick.

what happend

Con

I would first like to point out that Pro has set no stipulations as to how I should arrive at the answer as to "what happened." In the past, users who would post riddles, perhaps also with time limits, would prohibit their opponents from searching for the riddle. My opponent has done no such thing. Therefore, the internet is fair game.

The answer can be found here: http://goodriddlesnow.com...

This says, "The man was a fisherman and was telling somebody on the phone about the large fish he caught. When he used his hands to gesture how big the fish was he hit the glass breaking it and cutting himself."

There obviously isn't much more to explain. I have solved the riddle.

Vote CON.
