All these other riddles are making me think of others...

The teacher posed a problem involving 5 flies and a swatter to the boy. The boy posed a problem involving 3 women and ice cream to the teacher. Both got their problems wrong. Both felt they were right. But the teacher walked away embarassed.

I'm an old fart is how. For example, based on something you posted in another puzzle I'm guessing you're 22 or 23, am I close?

I give. Nobody wants to keep guessing if they think somebody else already got the answer first.

*************SPOILER**************
Little Johnny was sitting in class doing math problems when his teacher picked him to answer a question, "Johnny, if there were five birds sitting on a fence and you shot one with your gun, how many would be left?"

"None," replied Johnny, "cause the rest would fly away."

"Well, the answer is four," said the teacher, "but I like the way you're thinking."

Little Johnny says, "I have a question for you. If there were three women eating ice cream cones in a shop, one was licking her cone, the second was biting her cone and the third was sucking her cone, which one is married?"

"Well," said the teacher nervously, "I guess the one sucking the cone."

"No," said Little Johnny, "the one with the wedding ring on her finger, but I like the way you're thinking."
