And little Katie raises her hand and says, "As a matter of fact, today is my father's birthday, and it's also my grandfather's birthday."
The teacher says, "Oh really, how interesting."
Little Katie goes on to say, "And they're the same age."
The teacher says, "Oh, no, no, Katie, that can't be."
And Katie insists, oh, yes, they are the same age.
So the question is: Can it be and, if so, how? Now, if you start thinking about February 28th and all that, you're barking up the wrong tree.
RAY: Here's the answer. They're the same age because her father and her grandfather are not related. Her father is an old geezer who married some young gal, whose father is the same age as he is.
TOM: Sure. It happens to me all the time. I'm the same age as my wife's father.
RAY: Yes, I knew you'd get it. So, who's our winner?TOM: The winner this week is Bill Corbett, from Castine, Maine. Congratulations!
