Four men are in a room, Fred, George, Harry, and Curly. There are also 53 red bicycles in the room. Fred pulls out a gun and shoots George. Why did Fred shoot George?

(This is a popular one, I know that you guys are all well versed at google, but try not to look :-P Ask questions that can be answered yes/no/irrelevant, I will answer them, if you think you know the answer go ahead and post it.)

I had to look up the answer, I just got too curious (Heh, curiosity killed the Ally Cat). :roll: I certainly wouldn't have ever figured it out. Good luck to anyone else who tries!

Hint number 1:

We have established that the story could read:

People were in a room with 53 bicycles and one was shot. Why?
