Not sure if this was posted yet, one of my favorite jewish riddles.

How is it possible a first born, healthy, jewish, boy, that has an arla, would be patur from bris for life?
If his brothers from one parent died from bris but he is firstborn to the other parent?

How much sleep must we lose before @jj1000 tells us the answer?
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

None of these answers are even close. And yes, it's a real riddle not a trick or dumb answer.

Hes born as part of a set of triplets, hes the oldest, but not ready to get a bris right away. In the meantime the other 2 siblings get a bris and die. Then the oldest triplet becomes healthy and is patur.

I said he's healthy...

2 scenarios where hes always been healthy -

1. The other siblings simply had a bris first. The minhag is to do the oldest first, but I didnt see a Halacha against it. But the better answer is -

2. The oldest son was born Ben hashmashot Friday night, with a delayed bris until Sunday, while the others were born on Shabbos. Hence the other siblings had an earlier bris.
