    Some of you may have heard this one...

    Two men are walking together down a road, when they meet a traveler. One man turns to the other and says, "Brothers and sisters, I have none. But, that man's father, is my father's son."

    What was his relation to this man?

    I don't think so.

    Give your reasoning, please.

    Edit: For clarity, I am claiming that the speaker is the traveler's father. They were all referred to as 'man' in the OP, and that's a bit confusing.

    Can't put my reasoning into words. I just don't agree with your answer. Not that I can figure it out either. Perhaps I'm wrong and you're actually correct. Maybe the poster could chime in.

    Or, you could try googling it.

    Haven't googled it but I was thinking about it as I was going to sleep and I had to get up to let you know that I think you're right afterall.

    Yes, the speaker is the man's father. Bravo! I like poetic riddles, kind of adds another misdirection element.

    Thanks for playing

    Couldn't he be the man's father or the man's uncle?

    The speaker has no brothers or sisters, so he can't be the traveler's uncle.
