Alice

Alice, on her way to the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, came to a fork in the path that she was following. Luckily, Tweedledum and Tweedledee were there to help her out.

"The Walrus told me that one branch of this path would lead me to the Mad Hatter's house and that the other would take me to the den of the Jabberwock, a place I certainly don't want to go to. He said that you boys know the right path to take. He also warned me that one of you always tells the truth, and that the other one always lies. He also says that I can only ask of you one question." 

Alice then phrased her question in such a way that she was sure to get a correct answer regardless of which brother she asked. Can you figure out what question she put to the boys to get the right directions?

The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution.
