    Three logicians went into a restaurant.

    The waitress asked "Are you all having a starter?"

    The first logician said "I don't know".

    The second logician said "I don't know".

    What did the third logician say?

    Why?

    The third logician said yes.

    The first logician was probably being polite so said "I don't know" because he wanted to see if the other two were having a starter. The third logician reckoned that they probably did want a starter so he said yes.

    Though, he may not have wanted a starter? so I don't know really!

    If the third logician was having a starter then (s)he would say "Yes" and if they weren't then (s)he would say "No"

    Both the first two logicians must have been having a starter or either of them would definitely have said "no" in answer to the waitress's question
