Two boys were registering for the first grade. They were almost the same height and weight and had the same last name. The teacher asked: "Are you twins?"

"No," one of them answered.

When she noticed on their birth certificates that there was only six months difference in their ages, she asked: "Are you cousins?"

"No, we're brothers," one boy replied.

"Well," said the teacher, "Please have your mother write down the dates of your birth, and bring it to me. If you aren't twins and you are brothers, one of you would have to be more than six months older than the other."

Both boys looked at each other and then one of them said with a smile: "One of us don't have to be older than the other, cuz one of us is adopted. But I don't know which one."
