she has three kids. 1st childs name is (place coin) penny. second childs name is (place coin) nickel-as whats the third childs name? You'ld be surprised how many times you can go through it without anyone getting it.

The version I heard was:

Mary's parents had 5 daughters: Nana, Nene, Nini, and Nono. What is the 5th daughter's name?
Sep 20, 2008

Too easy. Partly because I had heard another version before...

Pretty easy, but really cute!

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.
