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.

One minute their one person the next minute their another  :) :)

granted, that is a down side to chipmunks. they also forget their password and have to wait to have an "episode" before replying!

if one was playing top trumps, who would have the better stats and in what catagories?
