The latest brain teaser on the web that is causing people to go insane trying to solve it is actually a very short riddle.
If Theresa's daughter is my daughter's mother, what am I to Theresa?
It is confusing as hell. Take a while to mull it over. Then scroll down through all the cute animal photos strategically placed to sooth your troubled mind for the answer.
There are two correct answers: Daughter or Son-in-law, depending on whether the person speaking is female or male.
Here is how you can wrap your brain around the convoluted order of the statement.
Statement: My daughter's mother is Theresa's daughter.
Female speaker: My daughter's mother = speaker.
Therefore, statement becomes: "Speaker is Theresa's daughter."
Male speaker: My daughter's mother = speaker's wife (for simplicity's sake).
Therefore, statement becomes: "Speaker's wife is Theresa's daughter."
