I have a little poser that may just fit this thread.
What is the last thing you take off before you go to bed?

I thought that change would give it away.Selmiak is close enough:) It's feet off the floor.

Here's another one that may be a bit anglo for some.
There are four flies on a door, which one is; a)wet b)sick c)sticky d)angry.

Yes :P - I think it was when you said "There are four flies on a door, which one is; a)wet b)sick c)sticky d)angry." - and no-one had any idea about what the answer was!!

Um... maybe a small hint?  Dunno if it's "too Anglo"; I'm English but that's not helping with working it out.

I was trying to figure out an answer using the anatomy of a door ala Anglo lingo.

... but I'm either not creative enough to see how this fits together, or I'm just on the wrong track.

TheBitPriest is correct about the anatomy of a door but any clues would give the answer. I'll give you one answer but I don't see that it will help with the rest.
The answer to b) is " the one on the panel " It's an old term for being absent from work through sickness.

TheBitPriest is correctomundo The one that fleww off the handle. I thought they were probably the hardest two. Any more guesses?

was (a) the fly in the ointment?

I might guess that the sticky fly was "on the jamb," but that's relying only on the sound of the word.  Some people call the side of the door the "sticking."  I guess he could be there.  The wet one might be on the mullion.
