    I know a question which can never be answered Yes, said
    Sam. So do I, said Joe. How about Äre you a gorilla? I could
    never answer that with a yes. Oh, yes you could, objected Sam.
    You would just have to lie. The question I have in mind could
    never be answered with a yes even by the most brazen liar.
    What was the question Sam had in mind?

    Have fun!

    A pickup line for the intellectual guy/girl;

    "Would your answer to this question be the same as your answer to the question if you want to sleep with me?"

    Now, now, don't you underestimate yourself, Kipukopoko.
    Don't overestimate yourself either, TheMaster37.
    In both cases you might be in for a little surprise !

    Anyway ... in both possibilities, I mean under- and overestimating,
    the answer could be yes or no.

    Ho yo bro iamatiger,

    I understand the direction in which you're pointing, but I'm afraid it's
    a bit too far fetched, maybe our young ones on RHP should have a go
    at this one. However it's a good shot ...

    mmmmmm, tricky, tricky. It's got to be a question
    in the category of "Are you a gorilla" or something like that.
    So in theory the question could be answered by saying yes or no.

    You could ask a Scotsman this question !

    Case 1: He answers yes and that means he's a Scotchman
    Case 2: He answers yes and he is a universal liar.
    Case 3: He answers yes and he gives you the money.

    So, sorry.

    look the last won is never gonna happen although i let u off with the other 2 (although its about the biggest lie possible for a scotsman)

    secondly is it like the question,"what word does every ox-bridge graduate pronounce wrong?"
