 Colorful hats (Posted on 2014-04-16)
A, B, and C were in a line blindfolded. They each had a hat put on their heads. They knew that the hats were taken from a box of 2 red, 2 yellow, and 3 blue hats. When the blindfolds were taken off, A could see B's and C's hats, B could only see C's hat, and C could not see any hats. They made the following statements.

A:I cannot tell what color my hat is not.
B:I cannot tell what color my hat is not.
C:I can tell what color my hat is.

What color is C's hat and how does C know?

 Three logicians walk into a bar ... Comment 6 of 6 |
Gotta post this joke:

Three logicians walk into a bar.  The bartender asks: "Do all of you want a drink?"

The first logician says "I don't know."

The second logician says "I don't know."

The third logician says "Yes!"
