I just saw an ad that posed this question (I’m changing it around to take out the weird racist overtones, because, in the original, I got distracted by the fact that, if there are five people with the “first” name Lee and they’re from China, that Lee is probably their patronymic and not some kooky thing those weird Chinese people might do.): Brent’s parents had five children whose name all start with “B.” Bernie, Blain, Barb, and Bruce are four of them. What’s the fifth child’s name?
Isn’t that stupid?
I mean, I know this is supposed to be a riddle on-par with “Thirty white horses upon a red hill. Chomping and stomping and then they stand still.” but if someone asked me that question, I think I’d pause not because I didn’t know but because I’d think he was a jackass who thought he was more clever than he actually was.
Does that even count as a riddle?
I don’t know. It just pissed me off.
