I was working on the automated check in machine at my library when someone paged Miles, and I immediately thought of this joke, or riddle, or Zen Koan.
Well, not immediately. It took me 15 minutes to work it out.
John, Keith, Pete, and Roger sat in a room and were asked to name the people that came in.
Five people were brought in. One was named Miles. Another Miles, and two more also were called Miles.
But one was named Myles.
One of the four of those quizzed said "I can see five Miles."
A second one said "I can see five Miles."
The third of them also answered "I can see five Miles."
But only the fourth one got it correct. The fourth one said "I can see four Miles, and Myles!"
