Why is a Raven like a Writing Desk?

Huzzah! Another question in the inbox. This one comes from my friend Brig. Here’s his question:

Why is a raven like a writing desk.

That’s quite a question, huh? And not just because of the confusing punctuation.

Well after three sleepless nights of pondering this question, thinking about similarities between ravens and writing desks, I decided to Google it. Turns out, this is just a line from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. In this classic tale, this is a question that Mad Hatter gives to a bunch of peeps. The punch line, is that there is no answer (or, at least, there wasn’t supposed to be an answer). So I guess the joke’s on me.

Well, Brig, I don’t appreciate your ruse.

My what?

Your ruse. Your cunning attempt to trick me.

I suspect that Brig’s motivation for sending me an unanswerable question is that he owes me a Chaco Taco, and is hoping to make my head explode so he doesn’t have to pay up.

Well it didn’t work, Brig. You still owe me a Chaco Taco. And hopefully everybody that reads this will follow this link and claim their own Chaco Taco. Then you’ll owe us all Chaco Tacos.

Any more questions?
