All the smart people I know tell me that this mean the picture is the man's son. But I still don't understand. Can somebody explain this to me? This is not from the LSAT but it is a logic problem that I'm sure many of you are good at.

EDIT: explanation removed. Sleezstack is right, it's not really deserving of an explanation. Suffice it to say, it really is a cheap trick question, not a 'mind puzzler'.

Sleezstak didn't quite understand could you explain it to him again.

Twarga understood perfectly.  She thinks big tex is smart.  She thinks big tex should be a teacher.

Sleezstak didn't mean for BigTex to reconsider explanation...on the contrary, Sleezstak thought it was precisely the explanation needed to such questions posted on this board.
