    Yes of course. I must stop watching TV while I am foruming! It´s the husband who is the polygamist.

    (or stop foruming whilst I am watching TV!)

    And now a challenge for you maidinbedlam! (or of course anyone) It´s still on the same subject if the moderators are watching!

    Here´s an old English riddle:

    Brothers or sisters have I none, but that man´s father is my father´s son. Who is that man?

    Does everyone agree?


    I wonder if the mods will let me start a thread on riddles? I shall try ;)

    I agree! :) It would be the son of the speaker of the riddle, who doesn't have any siblings. I think.

    Or, the husband if you, assuming the guy only has one sister.
