    $\begingroup$ Can you quote a source for this puzzle? I've certainly seen #2-4 elsewhere on the web before, which makes me wonder about the others too... Thanks. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I mean, I heard it from my friend... and then there are some additional questions #1, 5, 6... I doubt I can quote my friend here since he told me that physically :) (Also, I don't remember which friend asked me this particular set of questions...) $\endgroup$ Mar 12, 2023 at 12:02

    $\begingroup$ With chestnuts like this, it's quite common that there will be no way to provide meaningful attribution, so there's little sense in closing a question for that reason. (Unfortunately, chestnuts often are more joke than actual riddle and the "answer" is only "right" because "everyone" agrees what the "answer" is. Treated as an actual puzzle, they often allow good interpretations and answers that were not intended, making them poorly defined and/or invite—or even *require*—speculative or opinion-based answers, or ones which assume facts not given... and so end up closed anyway.) $\endgroup$
