The Red Ones

“I’m telling you, the red ones taste better.”

“How could they taste better? They all taste the same. The just have different colors.”

“Orange, yellow, and brown don’t taste as good as red, green, and blue. And red tastes the best of all of them.”

“You’re nuts, you know that?”

“Ask anybody.”

“If you close your eyes, you can’t tell which one you’re eating because they all taste the same!”

“Okay, try me. I’ll close my eyes and you give me one. If I can tell which color it is, will you believe me?”

“Fine. I’m only doing this to prove you wrong, you know?”

“Yeah, yeah.”

“No peeking!”

“I’m not! Just give one to me.”

“Okay. Here. What color is this one?”

“… Yellow.”

“Lucky guess.”

“Give me another.”

“Alright, what’s this?”

“… Another yellow. Come on, give me a good one!”

“How did you know?”

“I told you. They taste different.”

“And I know that’s bull.”

“Well, you explain it then.”

“Argh. Never mind. I’ll see you later.”

“Well, that was fun.”

“Yes, it was.”

“So how did you do it?”


“Yeah, I know you were pulling a fast one on her.”

“Well, I had a one in six chance. And her favorite color is yellow.”


“Sure. And she also was likely to try to trip me up by giving me the same color twice.”

“Are you going to tell her?”

“And get her mad at me? Nope. Better to let her think they taste different. Besides, I do like the red ones better.”
