Did Einstein really write this riddle?

There are many versions of this riddle (sometimes called Einstein’s Puzzle) BUT nobody can 100% confirm whether Einstein really wrote them or not.

One version has an introduction that says he wrote the riddle as a child – maybe to show how intelligent he was from a young age … compared to your own kids who most likely are wasting their life and constantly losing brain cells while mindlessly scrolling through social media.

Sometimes there are versions of this riddle that exchange the smoking and drinking (not really acceptable nowadays, especially when teaching kids) for playing sport or drinking something that is non-alcoholic. There are even versions where instead of finding out who has the fish, you have to find out who has the ZEBRA!!! Maybe I should create a version that says “Who got eaten by the Velociraptor?” That would be fun!

There was even a version of this riddle that appeared in Life International magazine way back in December 1962 (you know, in the old days, probably just after the dinosaurs … and those velociraptors).
