Cap Flap

Three men, Mr. White, Mr. Brown and Mr. Green, were in the habit of meeting in a local doughnut shop every morning for coffee and doughnuts.

One morning as they were sitting at their usual table, Mr. White remarked, “Hey, will you look at that.  We’re each wearing a colored baseball cap today.”  One white cap, one brown cap, and one green cap.  But interestingly, no one was wearing a cap of the color that matches his name.


At this, the guy wearing the green cap says, “Oh you stup’, that doesn’t mean anything, it’s just coincidence. Shut up and eat your doughnut.”


The question is what color cap is each man wearing?

    Mr. White: Brown
    Mr. Brown: Green
    Mr. Green: White

    All this because the guy in the green hat told Mr. White to shut up.

    I just hope Mr. White is not schizophrenic nor crazy :)

    Correct, Rool.

    Here’s why: If Mr. White says nobody is wearing a cap of his own color that obviously includes him, so he can be wearing either a green cap or a brown cap. But not a white one.

    And he can’t be wearing the green cap because the guy with the green cap spoke up. So Mr. White must be wearing what? The brown cap!

    And Mr. Green? He’s got to be wearing the white cap, and Mr. Brown has got to be wearing? The green cap!

    Congrats! You’re today’s winner.
