lol, I see what you did there. Nice try but that's not the answer.

Hint to number 6:
It's a 6 letter word

The answer to number 1:
[spoiler]
2 fathers
3 sons

1 grandfather (father)
1 father/son
2 sons
= 4

I'm thinking ...
Then ... the least amount would be 2.
1 grandfather who is also a father and a son
1 father who is also a son and a father
2

Screw the last one.... if it's not literal, it could be anything. And I'm sure it will piss me off when I see it. Drinking Beverage

I agree with your reasoning, but given that "three sons" attended I don't think you can honestly and easily get to a number lower than three by counting sons twice. My answer on that from the beginning was three: Grandfather, father, son - where "son" can be taken simply to be "male human". All three are sons, and all three caught a fish.

One could demand as earmuffs does here that each father be a father of someone present and each son be the son of someone present, but I don't see that in any literal reading of the riddle.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Nope. Drinking Beverage

PM me the right answer.

The way I figured it, all 3 are sons.

TheBear and others here are correct. All 3 of the presumed individuals are sons of somebody, the fact that 2 of them also happen to be fathers is a red herring. ...

Regarding #6:

If the question were spoken rather than written, you'd be free to punctuate it as you like. So it could be:

What's the longest word in "the English language"?

And the answer would obviously be, "language."

But at 8 letters, that's apparently not what Muffsy has in mind.

Religious disputes are like arguments in a madhouse over which inmate really is Napoleon.

*evil chuckle*
I know.



Regarding the father and son riddle. It was sort of assumed that each must be a son or father of the other. But yes I see what you mean by the grandfather is also a son so I concede that, well played.



@cufflink
I see what you're doing but no, it has nothing to do with the layout of the riddle. It's an actual word in the English language and you'll probably hate me forever when you hear the answer because it's incredibly sack.



I'll give the answer to number 6 later today.

I actually kind of don't agree with my reasoning - I just figured I had to give it a shot. Wink
