ExplainEverything to Flood

Mrs. Flood is frustrated.  

She just can't figure it out.

So help her out by Explaining Everything to her!  Rules first though...

1) Must use Explain Everything to provide a solution to Mrs. Flood - you can use any of the tools within Explain Everything to accomplish that (but you cannot ask her to explain Explain Everything).

2) Must submit in the Comment Stream here as a link to your uploaded video file (hint - export to YouTube and then submit the link).

3) Your Explain Everything must include your Novell username at the beginning or end (initials plus lunch number).  I can't give credit if I don't know who submitted.

4) Your solution must be the result of your original brain power.

5) Submit your explanation by the next full moon.

The Problem

Herman and Ishmael have met a new friend, Ahab, and they want to know when his birthday is (so they can throw a nautical themed birthday party).  Ahab gives them a list of 10 possible dates.

May 15, May 16, May 19,
June 17, June 18,
July 14, July 16,
August 14, August 15, August 17

Ahab then tells Herman and Ishmael separately the month and the day of his birthday respectively.

The following conversation then takes place:
Herman "I don't know when Ahab's birthday is, but I know that Ishmael does not know too"
Ishmael "At first I don't know when Ahab's birthday is, but I know now"
Herman "Then I also know when Ahab's birthday is".

So when is Ahab's birthday?

Prizes will be given based on creativity and my ability to fully understand your explanation.

**extra consideration for explanations that continue my literary references**

Lol to easy: do you mean too easy? Didn't ask for an answer, asked for an explanation that includes the appropriate literary reference.

Herman and Ishmael should just give up on giving him a party, because he obviously is a bad friend for trying to make this so much harder than it has to be.

He doesn't deserve a party.
