this would be a dill pickle. this is actually the riddle i told dr quake.

he said it incorrectly. it goes like this:

it takes half a chicken, half a day to lay half an egg. it takes a whole chicken, a whole day to lay a whole egg. how long would it take a monkey with a wooden leg to kick the seeds out of a dill pickle?

The answer:

An infinite amount of time.

Why:

Monkey's have a limited attention span, and would give up after a few seconds.

I'm going to be logical about this, which is most obviously going to be a mistake given the fact that we are talking about wooden-leg monkeys and dill pickles.

But I would say that it takes half as long as it takes half a wooden-leg monkey to kick half the seeds out of half a dill pickle!

Then again I might not have a leg to stand on here! Orange you glad I'm not going to use a lot of vegatable puns. I'll squash that idea right now. Lettuce go before I turnip any more lame jokes.

B4 we all waste way too much time on this, is there a real answer? One that is clearly correct to the exclusion of all others?
Or is someone just trying 2 fry what little gray matter we have left?

Hold on just one minute here.
If it takes half a chicken half a day to lay half an egg, why does it take a whole chicken a whole day to lay a whole egg?
Surely each half of the whole chicken would lay its half of the whole egg in the same amount of time it took for the original half a chicken to lay its half an egg - half a day.

If I was a Peg-legged monkey, I get an eye-patch and a cutlass and pretend I was a pirate. Then I would Rape and pillage the pickle.

Whoa.. I think I just got to weird for me.

Do you like dill pickles with seeds?
asked a wooden-leg monkey sitting in weeds.

I do not like dill pickles with seeds!
I do not loike monkeys sitting in weeds.

I will not eat a dill pickle just for fun,
I will not eat a dill pickle on a bun!

I will not eat it here or there...
I will not eat it anywhere!

No monkey with your leg of wood,
I don't think I ever could!

I do not like those slimy dill pickles!
Even with their seeds my throat they tickle!

Pardon the late response, but this is the first time I've visiting this forum. I have a different solution to this riddle.

The answer is never, the monkey has a peg leg, how is he gonna kick the seeds from a pickle? This is the only answer I could come to. The part about the chickens has nothing to do with anything. Itís probably there to confuse people. I doubt that the monkeyís peg-leg and the question about kicking is just a coincidence.

It almost seems like Iíve seen this kind of riddle before. But Iím not sure. I donít come across riddles very often.

It's not really a riddle, it's actually a metaphor for life.

I think the pickle represents Satan and the monkey represents Phil Donahue (sp). It's a epic battle between
Evil and TV ratings and the chicken is society reluctance to conjugate verbs.

My dad used to sing these little songs to me for what it is worth...

I can tell by your knees,
you've been climbing coconut trees,
and your bound to look like a monkey when you grow old.

I can tell by your chin,
that a monkey is your friend,
and your bound to look like a monkey when you grow old.


Thanks for the inspiration dad! I love you man!

Nice posting here, Liz! ROFLAO!

Pirate monkeys, raping and pillaging pickles? HAHA!

My answer: Since the seeds are inside the pickle, you can't kick them off. You can squash the pickle to get the seeds, but then you do not have a pickle but relish instead.
