Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for February 11, 2007
"Hey... listen to this riddle I just read." "Ohh, goodie... I'm great at riddles." "A man has a fox, a chicken, and some corn. He has to take them all across a river. He can only take one of the items at a time in his boat." "However, if he leaves the fox alone with the chicken, the fox will eat the chicken. If he leaves the chicken alone with the corn, the chicken will eat the corn." "What should he do?" "Buy a bigger boat." "It's not that hard if you think about it."
