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

Perplexing indeed...

It is a little known fact the woodchucks do, indeed, "chuck" wood. However, to accurately answer your question, you would need to take into account a time limit for such activities and provide a definition of "chuck'ing".

Hope this helps.

I know! We went to the source.

Actual phone call text from dialpad.com. It was when I was at boarding school, and we couldn't leave the dorm after 9:45 PM. You had to amuse yourself somehow. Dialpad was free long distance, AOL white pages our other friend.
Jon is a classmate of mine from Alabama. Mr. Wood was a guy in Louisiana, and had a real thick accent from the area.




*ring*

Mr. Chuck Wood: Hello?

Jon: Hello. Is this Mr. Chuck Wood?

Mr. Wood: Yes. Yes it is.

Jon: Are you aware, sir, that your name reversed is "Wood Chuck"?

Mr. Wood: Yes, I was aware of that.

Jon: Well then, how much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood, Chuck Wood?

Mr. Wood: Oh, about five cords.

*hang up*




So there you go. Five cords.


The standard cord is a pile of wood 4 feet high, 4 feet wide and 8 feet long. It occupies 128 cubic feet of space, but does not actually contain 128 cubic feet of wood because of the air spaces.
