Zed: Hi, Ned! LTNS!
Ned: For sure. How are things?
Zed: Well for one thing, me and the missus have a family now.
Ned: No!
Zed: Yep, three rug rats.
Ned: Is one of them a girl?
Zed: I could tell you, Ned, but then I'd have to shoot you. That question is part of a different puzzle, OK?
Ned: Sorry. So, how old are they then?
Zed: Well, the product of their ages is 72.
Ned: You know that doesn't tell me their ages, Zed.
Zed: Well, their ages add up to the day of the month you were born.
Ned: C'mon Zed, you're leaving me in the dark, man!
Zed: Well since you asked, the youngest is in fact a girl.
Ned: Thanks. Now I know their ages.

Was Ned telling the truth?
