Frank's Party of Five

The Puzzler


RAY: Now people immediately start thinking about dogs, cats, canaries, and the like. They figured somehow or other he's, you know -

TOM: Five children.

RAY: I mean how can you have -- how can half -- how can you have five and then half, right? Does he have half a boy?

TOM: I don't know.

RAY: Well, he does.

TOM: Oh.

RAY: And it would be correct to say that ten percent of them are boys. Sixty percent of them are boys, and a hundred percent of them are boys. Therefore...

TOM: They're all boys.

RAY: They're all boys. Half of them are boys. Are they not?

TOM: I don't like it.

RAY: I knew you wouldn't.

TOM: I don't.

RAY: But our winner liked it. Who's our winner?

TOM: Well, I'm not going to send this person anything. The winner is Barbara Beck from The Cats in California, Los Gatos, California.
