April, May and ?
Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.
Johnny's mother had three children. The first child was named April. The second child was named May. What was the third child's name?
It has to be Johnny. He's the third child!

|What's amazing is how many of these "trick" teasers don't fit the category description perfectly. Instead, we have some that are jokes, and some, like this one, that are not hard at first, then easy with the trick, but easy at first, until you realize you have the WRONG answer.|
