A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But 5 minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?

The woman was a photographer. She shot a picture of her husband, developed it, and hung it up to dry.

There is a word in the English language in which the first two letters signify a male, the first three letters signify a female, the first four signify a great man, and the whole word, a great woman. What is the word?

Heroine

From the Readers Digest folks:

You measure my life in hours and I serve you by expiring.
I’m quick when I’m thin and slow when I’m fat.
The wind is my enemy.

How many times can you subtract the number two from the number fifty?

Once. After that, you are subtracting the number two from the number 48!

A time when they are green, a time when they're brown, but both of these times, cause me to frown. But just in between, for a very short while, They're perfect and yellow and cause me to smile!

What am I talking about here?
