Alice came across a lion and a unicorn in a forest of forgetfulness. Those two are strange beings. The lion lies every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and the other days he speaks the truth. The unicorn lies on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, however the other days of the week he speaks the truth.
Lion: Yesterday I was lying.
Unicorn: So was I.

Which day did they say that?

There is no day when both the lion and unicorn lie. One is lying today and told the truth yesterday. If the lion is lying it would have to be Monday (and yesterday Sunday). But as both tell the truth on a Sunday that means the unicorn is lying and it told the truth yesterday, making it Thursday.

Without a bridle, or a saddle,
across a thing I ride a-straddle.
And those I ride, by help of me,
though almost blind, are made to see.
What am I?
