Default Jokes, riddles, or combo??? plus...Answer to my riddle...

Do you like riddles, jokes, or a combo??
Previous riddle...
Three men checked into a hotel room for which they paid $30. The next day, the manager realized that the men had been overcharged. She gave the bellhop $5 to return to the three men. On the way to their room the bellhop decided to keep $2 for himself, and give each of the three men one dollar. The three men had now paid $9 each, or a total of $27. This plus the $2 the bellhop kept makes a total of $29. What happened to the other dollar?

Solution:
Each man doesn't actually pay $9.00 for his share of the room. An even
split would be $8.33 and 1/3 cent per guest totaling $25.00.

8.33 1/3
8.33 1/3
8.33 1/3
2.00 bellhop
3.00 returned $1.00 each
________
30.00
