You might have heard this one before, but I just ran across it today. Changed slightly to entertain myself.
There are 5 houses in five different colors
In each house lives a different species.
These 5 owners drink a certain poison, smoke a certain brand of cigar and keep a certain pet.
No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar, or drink the same poison.
The Mummy lives next to the Blue House.
The Mantis drinks cyanide.
The one who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks mercury.
The Green House is on the left of the White House.
The owner who smokes Blue Master drinks gasoline.
The one who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
The one in the center house drinks bleach.
The Egg lives in the Red house.
The Mummy lives in the left-most house.
The Human keeps dogs as pets.
The one who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
The Green House’s owner drinks hydrochloric acid.
The one who keeps horses lives next to the one who smokes Dunhill.
The Bacon smokes Prince.
Who owns the fish?
