    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? smile

      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!

    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.
