An Irishman was confused by a popular riddle in a hilarious video that has gone viral.
The poor fella was put on the spot by his partner who trained her camera phone on him and asked him the following question;
“There were 30 cows in a field and 28 chickens. How many didn’t?”
It’s a riddle that has become popular over the last couple of years with other videos showing people struggling to get their head around it also going viral.
Unfortunately for this guy, he hadn’t seen any of the previous videos and the riddle was still a mystery to him.
He was clearly a little frustrated as his workmates had been asking him the question all day. However, they didn’t tell him the answer so his partner continued to question him.
She kept repeating the question, but that wasn’t the problem. He knew the question by heart, he just couldn’t work out what he was actually being asked.
Eventually she took pity on him and said the riddle in another way that would surly help him realise the answer.
She said: “Thirty cows, twenty ATE chickens. How many didn’t eat chickens?”
However, he had pretty much given up any hope of understanding and was still unable to get it right until the bitter end.
When the penny finally drops he is unimpressed and puts his head in his hands.
Take a look at the video below. Warning very strong language.
