Tweedledum and Tweedledee lived in the Forest of Oblivion. They had a peculiar habit of telling the truth and telling lies alternately. One of them lied on every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, but told the truth in the rest of the week. The other lied on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, but told the truth on any other day.
Alice didn't know which of them tells the truth on which day, she couldn't even identify the brothers, because they looked so similar. All this made her a bit embarrassed when she met them in the Forest.
One said, "I'm Tweedledum."
The other said, "I'm Tweedledee."
Can you tell which was Tweedledum and which one Tweedledee?
Today is Wednesday where I live so Tweedledum is lying today. So he must be Tweedledee. But Tweedledee is telling the truth so ahhh... well I guess I'll have to wait til Sunday when both are telling the truth!

Thanks MangoGirl and Ripplemaker. I appreciate both your comments and thanks for the hub mention rip. I guess all the practice while writing those brain teasing hubs has paid off, haha!
Since one of them is lying and one is telling the truth no matter what day of the week it is, the guy who says I'm tweeduldum is tweedledee and the one vice versa.

Hi everyone,Here's a thought...We have been taught to speak the truth, but it is right to do so in the cost of hurting/harming someone? Especially if that someone is a person we care for? It is one of the biggest...

Why do parents get upset that their child/children have lied to them? Why was it okay for them to lie on their behalf? Do you as a parent firmly believe it's a difference between a little white lie, a good lie, or a...
