Three friends - sculptor White, violinist Black, and artist Redhead- met in a cafe. ''It is remarkable that one of us has white hair, another one has black hair, and the third has red hair, though no one's name gives the colout of their hair', said the black-haired person. ''You are right'', answered White. What colour is the artist's hair????

The black-haired person spoke, and Mr. White answered, so Mr. White has red hair.

The black-haired person can't be the violinist Mr. Black. That means the black-haired speaker had to be the artist, Mr. Redhead. So the artist's hair is black.

Because they see each other's face, and assume their own is the same degree of dirty. So one sees a dirty face and thinks his own face is dirty; the other sees a clean face and thinks his own face is clean.

Plus, John's always been a slob....
