The title sounds like it was put together by a 3rd grader. :p

Are these any funny?

on the contrary, tough nut to crack did you know the "phony gold" puzzle or funny gold puzzle :D
Link to "www.columbopodcast.com"
14) What is the "phony gold" puzzle, from "The Bye Bye Sky High IQ Murder Case"?

The puzzle:

In a room are several sacks of gold pieces, as many sacks as you like. Each sack contains several of these gold pieces -- again, as many as you like. One sack, however, is full of artificial gold pieces, and they weigh differently. The solid gold pieces weigh, let's say, a pound each. And the artificial pieces weigh, let's say, a pound and an ounce.

Now you have a penny scale. You put the penny in, and you get a card, and that tells you how much the weight of the gold is. But, you only have one penny. You have one reading on the weight.

Which sack has the artificial gold pieces?

The answer (as deduced by Mrs Columbo):

Well let's just say there are three sacks. And each real gold piece weighs one pound. But one of these sacks has the phony gold. And the phony gold weighs one pound and one ounce.

We're going to the scale. Now, we take one piece from bag one, we take two pieces from bag two, we take three pieces from bag three. That's six pieces. We take all six pieces, we put em on the scale.

Now...if all six pieces were real the gold, it would weigh six pounds. But if the first bag had the phony pieces, it would weigh six pounds and one ounce, because I only took one piece from the first bag. And if the second bag has phony gold pieces, it would weigh six pounds and two ounces, because I took two pieces from the second bag. And if the third bag were the phony bag, it would weigh six pounds and three ounces. And so on, and so on, and so on.

Sir...it's a terrific puzzle.

At least this episode features Theodore Bikel who was quite a versatile actor AND it was directed by Sam Wanamaker, a Canadian actor who initiated the reconstruction of Shakespeares Globe Theatre.
