Going Crackers

Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.

A cracker company was very mad when they heard the results from their cracker survey. The result said that the customers would prefer crackers to nothing at all. The same customers think that donuts are better than everything else.

A new employee at the company had to tell their boss the bad news, but he saw a window of opportunity to get a promotion. When he got to his boss, he told him that the customers really preferred crackers to donuts.

How did he come up with that?

That's pretty cool, but it's not a trick - maybe a language one

Lol... clever, i guess ;p

But... it's based upon two different meanings of the word "nothing" ... and, it also means the guy lied lol.

I was thinking, maybe he meant crackers were better than donuts (as in the car wheel) loll..

The logic's kinda flawed in this one... sorry dude, but this teaser confuses grammatical logic with mathematical. Can't do that.

I thought that you could conclude that all the customers were lying because if they truly preferred crackers to nothing then they would not have become cracker customers. By logic, you could say that they preferred crackers to donuts.

Even after putting down my donut, I couldn't come up with this clever one. I must be going crackers. Fun Teaser!

great teaser... logic was my favorite and best subject in math... thanx for a truly creative one... send some more this way

Ugh... Mathematically correct, but grammatically faulty. Good try.

I really tried to get this one but
maybe I missed the clue"Nothing
is better than Donuts"?
I think I saw they liked donuts
better?

Most everyone else got it so
be a little slow today.

I came up with there was a hole
in the donut theory.

Another Tea please.

Thanks for the Teaser anyway,
The answer was cool !

Very cute, very funny, but I didn't get it right. I was going in the right direction, but took a sideroad and got lost.

With a fever of 102degrees I got it right. Maybe that's the secret. Fry your brain and it works better.LOL
Thanks for brightening my miserable day. Loved the teaser.

2ndhandrose, they arrived at that conclusion because "donuts are better than everything" equates to "nothing it better than donuts." If donuts are better than everything, nothing can be better than them or it would be donuts are better than everything EXCEPT that one thing that is better. See?

Good teaser.

Too clever and too hard for me. Total 'gotcha"

It's good, if a bit of a stretch. Never a good idea to say anything that even possibly be interpretted as a lie to a boss.

Smart...nice...

I liked the teaser... It was ingenious... Never would have thought of the answer... Unique... Thanks for the great teaser!

it took me a while to understand the logic.

i thought it was that doughnuts were sooo full of sugar that their nutritional value was, pretty much, nothing.
great teaser! i enjoyed it!!!

Very similar to the ham sandwich.

If a ham sandwich is better than nothing, and nothing is better than eternal happiness then a ham sandwich is better than eternal happiness

2 different meanings of "nothing".
But cute, I guess.
So did he get a promotion?

^ Yeah, it uses the equivocation fallacy. Nice teaser, though
