Weekend Puzzle

Three ladies go out for a night on the town: Miss Blue, Miss Green, and Miss Black. One is wearing a blue dress, one a green dress, and one a black dress.

"Look!" says Miss Blue. "We all have on dresses that match our last name, but none of us is wearing a dress that matches her own name!"

"I want another drink," says the lady in black.

What color is each lady wearing?

[This is an old one, which was probably first devised by Martin Gardner.]

Miss Blue - green dress
Miss Black - blue dress
Miss Green - black dress

(Miss Blue is not the lady in black, therefore she must be wearing green. That leaves Misses Black and Green, who are wearing blue and black.)

Ding ding ding! That is the correct answer.
