### The Five Legged Lamb

Abraham Lincoln once asked, "How many legs does a sheep have if you call its tail a leg?"

What do you think the correct answer is?

I would say one, since calling a leg a tail means you can no longer call legs "legs".

Read the question again; we're not calling a leg a 'tail', we're calling the tail a 'leg'.

Now how many legs does that sheep have?

Deepak said...

still the sheep has 4 legs!
