I'm leaving now, but if anyone's online, I'll start a joke/riddle thread.

 

It can be used for chat, too...

 

I'll post a quick riddle and anyone else can do the same.

 

 

There was once a trapezist named the Amazing Alexis. One and all gathered to watch the performer's tricks.

 

Unfortunately, the Amazing Alexis was in an accident and perished, but not before writing a will. It stated that the star's money would be stored until the performer's oldest grandson came forth to claim it. If none did, then the nearest relative would be awarded the money.

 

One day, a man from Chicago was found, claiming to be Alexis' grandson. His name was Gregory Magnusson.

 

He went to court to claim his inheritance. While the judge heard his case, from the back of the court room, a woman exclaimed that the Amazing Alexis was NOT Magnusson's grandfather, and that she, Alexis' niece, rightfully deserved the money.

 

As the judge listened, he had to agree that she WAS Alexis' niece and the performer was NOT Magnusson's grandfather.

 

However, Magnusson argued that he WAS indeed the Amazing Alexis' grandson.

 

Who got the money?

 

 

I'll reveal the answer tomorrow when I get the chance.

The answer is Magnusson!

 

Remember, the niece stated that the Amazing Alexis was NOT Magnusson's grandfather.

 

This is true.

 

However, it is also true that Magnusson, as he stated, was Alexis' grandson!

 

The key to this puzzle, is that you had to know that...

 

The Amazing Alexis was female!
