View Full Version : Who owns the fish?

I came across this a few years ago and had fun working it out, only remembered it again today when I went to find it for a friend.

Yes darlings, I tried searching PPRUNE both with the search engine and google but no returns, so voila.

There are five houses in a row and in five different colours.

In each house lives a person from a different country.

Each person drinks a certain drink, plays a certain sport, and keeps a certain pet.

No two people drink the same drink, play the same sport, or keep the same pet.

* The Brit lives in a red house
* The Swede keeps dogs
* The Dane drinks tea
* The green house is on the left of the white house
* The green house owner drinks coffee
* The person who plays polo rears birds
* The owner of the yellow house plays hockey
* The man living in the house right in the centre drinks milk
* The Norwegian lives in the first house
* The man who plays baseball lives next to the man who keeps cats
* The man who keeps horses lives next to the one who plays hockey
* The man who plays billiards drinks beer
* The German plays soccer
* The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
* The man who plays baseball has a neighbour who drinks water.

The fish is owned by the soccer-playing, coffee-drinking German who lives in the green house. :ok:

Really? Never seen a British sturgeon while fishing on the Peak Forest canal. Does she keep 'em in some fish tank somewhere?

She usually lets the catcher keep it - there was one caught in South Wales a coupla years ago. She also owns whales (as well as Wales) and dolphins.

See here (http://www.royal.gov.uk/output/Page4833.asp) and scroll down a tad to "Fact 79".
