The video was posted on to YouTube in 2015 and has been viewed tens of thousands of times.

The description reads: “Glasses hanging on her nose, sewing machine & talking about fields, cows and chickens – typical Irish mammy at her best 😂”

At first Lisa’s Mammy is not too interested in the riddle, and continues with her sewing, but as the video goes on, she becomes more frustrated and gives it her full attention.

The riddle is based on a clever play on words, which seems simple once you know the answer.

However, Lisa’s Mammy couldn’t get her head around it and repeatedly gets her daughter to repeat the riddle so that she can try and understand.
She even repeats it back to her, but still can’t find the answer.

As the confusion goes on, Lisa can be heard giggling away as she watches her Mammy struggle. She even has thinks she has solved the puzzle a couple of times, only to be told she is wrong.

Eventually, Lisa gives in and tells her Mammy the answer.

Take a look at the video below, and see if you can get the answer before Lisa has to reveal it.
