actually riddle is a bit more complicated then that:
1)the clean boy looks at the dirty boy; realizes that his face must be dirty and washes.
2)if it ever happens again the dirty boy will wash because he realizes that the clean boyy washed the last time so he must be dirty
3)why would two people doing the same thing end up with two different results? they should either be both clean or both dirty.

This riddle is an adaptation of the "robbers riddle". My #2 answer therefore might not make as much sense in this context.

#3: gardening isnt some mathematical equation, jeez. someone can easily stay perfectly clean (at least their face) while gardening, someone else could just as easily get very dirty

#2: they don't see this as a riddle, and their not logicians that see through multiple steps. they're just gardening.

#1: duh... thats part of the riddle answer. they both look at each other's faces and do opposite of what they need to do.
