Riddle: Mrs. Blue and Mr. Red lived together on a rainbow with Mr. Yellow. There were also three children living on the rainbow: Purple, Green and Orange. They lived in harmony for many months until one day Mr. and Mrs. Blue parted and went down either ends of the rainbow. Why?
Answer: Mrs. Blue and Mr. Red had their one child Purple. One day Mr. Red had an affair with Mr. Yellow and they had a Orange child. After figuring out what had taken place, Mrs. Blue wanted to get her own back and so she had an affair with Mr. Yellow and they had a Green baby. Mr. Red was rather confused when his wife gave birth to a Green baby as Red and Blue makes purple not green. Therefore he figured out what had taken place behind his back and parted with Mrs. Blue!
