Aaron is drinking milk. Allan is drinking juice. There are only these two drinks available. When Amy joins them, she wants something to drink too, and sees that there are just two choices. She thinks carefully and, choosing one, drinks an entire glass. Does Amy drink milk or juice?

I think you two have both heard this one before and know the answer. If so, that answer still applies, even though I changed the riddle up a little.

Maybe the riddle actually made sense before you "changed the riddle up a little"? There's no reason I can see why milk is "one". Just because you mentioned it before juice, no one should reasonably conclude that milk is choice # 1 and juice is choice #2.

I've heard several different variations of this type.

Do you mean the riddle doesn't make sense? I did not say 'milk' is definitely correct.

What do you mean you didn't "definitely" say milk was correct? You said to grey cells and Theo "If so, that answer still applies". Is it or is it not the correct answer and is it for the reason I gave? You're not supposed to play games like this. When someone gives an answer, please state whether or not it's correct or not.

I think that lausus just wanted to say that there can be more than one answer. :)
