I'd say probably 15 pounds, but how big is it?

About the same amount of wood a Woodchuck could chuck if a Woodchuck could chuck wood.

lol - this topic really made me laugh.

According to a New York Times article: New York state wildlife expert Richard Thomas, found that a woodchuck (aka Groundhog) could (and does) chuck around 35 cubic feet of dirt in the course of digging a burrow. Thomas reasoned that if a woodchuck could chuck wood, he would chuck an amount equivalent to the weight of the dirt, or 700 pounds.

Now, in this question - are we talking yearly consumption or daily consumption? Yearly it would be 254,800lbs of wood, assuming he doesn't chuck wood on February 2nd (Groundhog Day).

Nope, I screwed it up. I've seen it before but I thought it was the 'other' one.

How much moose could a mini mouse move if a mini mouse could move mouse.

which is the response to the wood chuck question but don't ask for it in latin, ok. My latin was never any good, just like my french.
