Question that I need the answer to:

So I want everyone to think about this question...take your time, perhaps discuss it while cooking with a family member or friend. Even here at DC if you wish. It's a very serious question with serious consequences...so here it goes:

If it takes twenty-two blueberry pancakes to shingle a doghouse, how long does it take a turkey with a wooden leg to kick a hole through a peanut?



(More importantly, can you read that question without cracking up? I can't.)

This is a trick question.
First, it takes more than 22 pancakes, because my black lab keeps eating
them.
Second, the turkey never gets a chance to kick the peanut, because my
white labtriever keeps chasing it because she thinks it needs TWO wooden legs.

HOWEVER, were said turkey able to kick the peanut, it would take the turkey
somewhere between 3 and 7 seconds.

Unless the peanuts were boiled, in which case the smell would kill the turkey
and we would eat it for Sunday dinner.

But we couldn't use the pot to cook it in, because it already has a chicken in it.

Fisher's Mom - I skipped lunch today.

GrillingFool - good answer, but it might be possible that there is a chance you are wrong.

GB: Wrong question. This is much more serious. ;)
