If so, let's call the teacups A, B and C. C is the big one.
Put 3 cubes in A, put 1 cube in B and 2 cubes in C. C will have an odd number when you put B inside C.

I don't care if I'm wrong, I'm happy just feeling smug that I can think outside of the teacup.

Correct! Now enjoy your complementary virtual cup of tea Big Grin

An alternative solution:

Put 1 cube in A, put 3 cubes in B and 2 cubes in C. C will have an odd number when you put B inside C.
