A father and his son are in a car accident. The father dies instantly, and the son is taken to the nearest hospital. The surgeon comes in and exclaims "I can't operate on this boy."
- "Why not?" the nurse asks.
- "Because he's my son," the surgeon responds.
How is this possible? Do you know the answer dear Atria?
I have to tell you that I did not come up with the right answer. I had various guesses that maybe the boy was adopted or it was his step-dad that died in the accident. None of my guesses were correct. People who where asked to solved this riddle in the programme also didn't get the answer. Well... the answer is actually very simple - the surgeon was a boy's mother! Somehow however we associate a surgeon with a man, we automatically assume that it must be a man and therefore solving this riddle becomes impossible. I think it is very interesting how our brain works.
