Can anybody solve this riddle?
You enter a room and on the bed are 2 dogs, 4 cats, a giraffe, 5 cows and a duck; with 3 birds flying over a chair. How many legs are on the floor?
(One of my friends posted this on Facebook, and I'm not sure what the correct answer is.)

The person is 2,the bed is 4 and the chair is 4,so the answer would be 10....unless the chair is also on the bed and then,the answer is 6.It's kinda vague about the chair....

Unanswerable - cannot know how many legs the bed and chair have.

Well, the logical answer would be 2, ---just the person who entered the room........assuming the person has two legs, right? all the animals are on the bed.
but then you throw in the chair, and a chair as 4 "legs".
as does the bed. So that's 2+ 4+ 4 = 10 legs.
but the variable is......you don't say if the chair on the floor.....maybe it's on the bed as well, and maybe the bed is a futon on the floor, with no legs.
Har har. So depending which answer you want.......the answer can be 2, 6, or 10.

10, the bed's legs, chair's legs and the person's legs or zero because only feet are on the ground. I've heard that riddle correctly answered with both answers at different times.
