Baseball Team Hats
RAY: This is a classic case of a little knowledge being a dangerous thing.
RAY: I have no idea how to solve that problem, but I do know --
TOM: That the answer is zero.
RAY: The answer is... In fact, as difficult as it might be for 20 out of 20 to get their hats, it's even harder for 19 --
RAY: -- out of 20 to get the right hat.
RAY: In fact, it's impossible, because if 19 kids get the right hat, that leaves only one hat and one head.
RAY: And it must belong to --
TOM: The wrong kid.
RAY: -- the other kid.
RAY: Louie just got it! All right, Louie!
TOM: If one kid's got the wrong hat, there's gotta be another kid with the wrong hat. It's simple as that.
TOM: And that's why I got the answer so fast, because I didn't do any calculations, because I don't know how to do any calculations.
RAY: Anyway, who's our winner, Tommy?TOM: Oh, a winner! The winner is David Krumpe from Penn Hills, Pennsylvania.
