There are two men in a pub. Two women walk in, and both men say ‘Here is my wife and daughter’. If the men have not married the same woman and the women aren’t pregnant, how can this be true?
This puzzle comes from the wonderful Skepitcal Intelligencer magazine.
If you have not tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else the answer is after the break.
The two men are widowers who each married the daughter of the other.
