Who's who at the zoo?

Who's who at the zoo?
by Rick Lime

There were parrots and bears at the zoo
Counting all of their heads, twenty-two
And the group was replete
With some sixty-eight feet
Can you figure out how many flew?


  1. Damn! I used to know how to do this -- simultaneous equations are used, right? Sigh...

    Clever limerick!

  2. Thanks Mad. Some people might use math to solve this one, but it's designed to be a logic puzzle. OK, a little arithmetic is required, but nothing fancy.
    I've got quite a collection of logic puzzles, I'm going to go through them and see if there are any more I can 'lear-icize'.
