I'll give it a try. Some of these I've either heard before or got them in school as trick questions.

1. Yes.
2. One birthday.
3. 12 months
4. The beggar is a woman? Not sure about that one.
5. He's still alive.
6. 6
7. No. He's dead.
8. They played different people, not each other?
9. 70
10. White
11. You have 2 - that's definitely a new one for me
12. 50 cent piece and the other one is a nickel
13. Match
14. 1/2 way in, then the dog's running out
15. I'm stumped on this one. The obvious answer is an hour and a half, so I know that's wrong. Maybe it's something crazy like as long as you didn't swallow them? But I'm thinking it has to do with the start of the hour, the middle, and the top, so you take them all in the hour. But I'm not sure if it's talking about that or how long the pills actually last.I'll just say I'm stumped.
16. Nine
17. None
18. Haven't heard this one. Weighs meat?
19. 12? Another new one on me.
20. Barrack Obama, I'm guessing?
I know I had heard none of those last six, but I had heard most of the ones before that, naybe all but three.

Anyway, I'm thinking I at least got a B. Thanks, Laura Leigh!!!
