My friend says that he will buy my concert tickets till the end of the year if I figure out this riddle:

There are 3 men: One is blind, one is deaf and one is mute. The mute man sees the deaf man stealing the blind man's wife... now how can the mute man tell the blind one that his wife has been kidnapped?

I've thought it over for a while and can't come up with anything. Pit help.

the mute one can design braille in the form of "Paul kidnapped your wife".

I named the deaf one Paul.

Poop.


Yes, poop.
#5
By sucking the blind man off. He will notice it isn't his wife and conclude that that communist deaf pig stole his wife.
#6
The Mute man learns braille and communicates through braille to say that his wife is dead.
DeVillains!
#8
Write it down for a someone who isn't mute or blind to read to the blind man?
#9
using a computer text-to-speech program.
??? Fund: cba to keep up with it.
will at least try when I get a jerb

It's not really a riddle. There are tonnes of ways he can tell him!

Your friend must be looking for a specific answer. A trick question maybe? Hmmm...

EDIT: The suggestions so far (Computer text-to-speech, braille, someone else to say it) have had nothing to do with the guy that stole the wife being deaf. Maybe that's the key.

Why doesn't the mute guy go behind the deaf guy and kill him? Not like the deaf guy will hear him creeping behind him. The mute guy can't make any noise, so it's not like he'd yell "WHY DID I DO THIIIIIIIIIIIS" or the always appropriate "YAHHHHHHHHHH" that seems to give killers away all the time.

why would he tell the blind man when he can run off and join in with the other two?

There never was a deaf man, the blind man's wife died years ago in a car accident, that was also when the blind man turned blind. He was the one driving ಠ_ಠ

But then who was mute?!

This sounds like one of those lateral thinking puzzles that only work if you get to ask yes/no questions. My guess is that Blind, Deaf and Mute are just their names, or something fucking unlikely like that.

Well, assuming they're all in the same room when this happens, then he'll know it from his wife's screams, unless she's into that sort of thing.

Otherwise, text to speech program would seem to be the most logical way to tell him.

First take the blind man over the river leaving the deaf and mute men on one side.

Come back, take the deaf man over, leave him there BUT take the blind man back with you.

Now collect the mute man and leave the blind man back on the original side. Return the mute.

Finally come back and collect the blind man.

I forgot to mention the blind man's wife was there too, now they're all on the other side of the river, you can sail off with her downstream.

YOU kidnapped his wife.

've come across several variations of this riddle. Many involve a stolen orange instead of $100.

One of the variations uses the word both as in "There is a deaf man, a blind man and a mute man. They both have an orange".

This giving the hint that there are only two men on the island.
Thus the solution is that the man who is both mute and deaf can simply give the blind man back his orange/$100 (letting him know that he had stolen it in the first place).

The other answer deals with the final sentence:
"How can Mute tell Blind what happened? "
The answer is "he could tell him by saying he stole your $100".
In other words "if he wasn't mute, he would simply tell him".
This answers the question asked even though it is impossible for mute to actually do so because he is mute.

Quite simple really. Grab a Braille-English dictionary (or something similar) and string a sentence together.

It's probably not the answer but it would work IRL.

either brail, some sort of auto-speak computer program, or the wife wasn't kidnapped, she was just an adulterer.

Or wait! Perhaps the Blind man isn't actually blind blind and so all the mute man had to do was find his glasses for him ^.^

The deaf man is also the mute man. Therefore he is a deaf-mute!! People born deaf obviously can't speak because they don't know how the words are supposed to sound.
