I've always been a trifle perplexed by this little rhyme.  Who came up with it, and what does it really mean?

 How much wood would a wood chuck chuck, if a wood chuck could chuck wood?

A wood chuck could chuck two to eleven pounds of wood, if a woodchuck could chuck its own weight.

According to a Wall Street Journal article, Richard Thomas, a wildlife expert from New York, estimated that a woodchuck moves about 700 pounds of dirt in building its burrow...so, he estimated that over that same time and effort, a woodchuck could chuck 700 pounds of wood if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

Well I think it all depends on how strong the wood chuck is, but also how determined it is. You never know, there could be a mighty wood chuck like there is a Mighty Mouse  ;)

I prefer beavers chipmonks especially those of the chippy-chipmunk variety tend to have split personality's.
