I was alittle confused at first, Cause in Sweden(where Im from) the Calender week starts with monday. But I checked with www.dictionary.com(American dictionary site) and it said "a period of seven consecutive days starting on Sunday". So the statement in the riddle is true.... Good one... you fooled me! ;o)

I thought that the answer would be "tuesday isn't the second day of the week" because its in TRICK! I've never heard that the first day of the week is Sunday..."The final day the lord rested ..."??
Although the cambridge dictionary does say "a period of seven days either from the beginning of Sunday to the end of Saturday or from the beginning of Monday to the end of Sunday"

I like rashad's answer better, but I knew the answer you were looking for was Monday. Easy.

i didn't even look at the answer - i wanted to see what people thought about monday being considered the second day of the week.
different places have different days as the start of their week, but it's generally either the monday or the sunday

I believe that the 2nd day of the week is Tuesday. God rested on the 7th day of creating the world, which is Sunday. Therefore Monday is the first day of the week.

Even though in America we consider Monday the second day of the week. God rested on the last day, didn't he. And that was Sunday, wasn't it. And if I recall Sunday is in the weekend, which if I'm not mistaken MEANS THE END OF THE WEEK. So unless I'm STUPID and I don't belong in the GIFTED PROGRAM and I shouldn't have SKIPPED A GRADE the correct anwer would be: neither, it is pronounced: toos-day.

Sorry to lose my temper. I just hate it when people consider Sunday the first day of the week. But even though I strongly disagree with the teaser I do like the trick and the way it was worded.(And I DID get it right )

Please do not mark my comment negative because people need to see my point of view

thx- Gigi/ beyonce123
