As I said on the xkcd LJ-feed:
My labyrinth puzzle would have a guy or a sign that tells you "one guard always tells the truth, the other always lies, you can only ask one question, one door leads to death and one to where you want to go", but then the guards would actually just be directed to stab anyone who speaks to them. One door would lead to the bathroom, and the other to where you want to go (unless that's the bathroom). And there would be a sandwich vending machine. You would win by buying two sandwiches and giving one to each guard, then you could have free use of the doors. Thus, people who are legitimately allowed in my base will get in and also fund my guards' food, and people who aren't allowed will surely believe the stupid puzzle and get stabbed. Or if they don't, at least they'll buy my guards a sandwich.

Ah, excellent - there's something about these sort of setups that always inspires a giggle from me.

Ooooh!!! Can I take the one who stabs people who ask tricky questions to my Microsoft Interview? :P

Alas, I suspect you'd have to transport the gate he guards as well. ;) (Good luck on your interview, though!)

I'll happily volunteer to be that guard for you. Stabbing Microsoft people for asking tricky, annoying, or otherwise stupid questions sounds like fun.

Seems like the stabby guard would end up killing the two other guards in the course of their daily conversation.
