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?

Would you be willing to tell the...

Should you lie when honesty will just get you into trouble?
