### Bert Goes to a Party

You are at a logic master's party.  The host has decided to play a game.  He takes 8 stamps, 4 red and 4 green and announces the rules.  He will affix two stamps to each party goers head and then he will place the remaining two in his pocket.  You, Bert, and two others, Al and Casey, can see the other stamps, but don't know your own stamps and cannot see the stamps in the host's pocket.

The host then asks each of you in turn if you know the colors of your own stamps:
A: "No."
B: "No."
C: "No."
A: "No."
B: "Yes."

What color stamps do you have?
