  • This question was asked once before, in a slighly different form, using a peglegged monkey instead of a woodpecker. Here is the answer that I gave to it. as found on http://www.kenspace.net/ First, the part about the 1.5 chickens laying 1.5 eggs in 1.5 days: The rate at which any single chicken or groups of chickens can lay eggs has no bearing whatsoever on the kicking ability of peg-legged monkeys. They are not even of the same species of animals. This part of the question exists entirely as a ruse to distract the audience. Unless you're trying to determine the total area of the field the blue tractor supposedly plowed, you may ignore this chicken data. The specific answer we seek is the total duration of time it would take a monkey with a wooden leg to kick the seeds from the dill pickle. The difficulty in resolving this problem lies within the fact that various pickles, dill or not, contain a varying amount of seeds. Furthermore, the size, strength and ability of a single-legged monkey can vary greatly. Therefore, without more specific parameters the question is impossible to answer.
  • It would take just as long as a woodchuck chucking wood if a wooochuck could chuck wood.
  • Well lets look at the facts. A chicken and a midget mate then 36 hours later lays an egg and a half...it would take as long to answer this question as someone scientifically answers this question with dignity!
  • I just want to see that half a chicken lay a half egg!
    • mushroom
      Or is that one "chicken-and-a-half"?

  • Why would a monkey have a wooden leg? Splinters would be hell.
  • "I give up" and so did the cricket.

Furthermore, the size, strength and ability of a single-legged monkey can vary greatly. Therefore, without more specific parameters the question is impossible to answer with a definite number. But we can answer it with an equation. using V as a variable for the velocity of the kick, L for the diameter of the leg, s for the number of seeds in the dill pickle and X for the time we get the equation. X*1.28(L)/S=X *=multiplication /= division
  • Caesar salad, and thirteen rubber duckies.
  • I just discovered this question in a slightly different form already asked answered and commented on. OOps
  • a day and a half. DA
  • First of all, it's a grasshopper with a wooden leg, neither a woodpecker nor a monkey. The simple answer is: Seeds don't have pickles.
  • The answer is: Who cares? Ice cream has no bones!
  • Motorcycles and flagpoles don't have doors.
