I was playing round the other night can came up with this SQL to solve a popular tongue twister:
woodchuck.can_chuck = 1
woodpile.is_chucked = 1
Here is another one:
SELECT COUNT(pepper.picked) FROM pepper WHERE pepper.picked_by = ‘Peter Piper’
A couple more with the tongue twisters:
Which wristwatches are Swiss wristwatches?
SELECT watch.* FROM watch WHERE watch.make = ‘Swiss’
Which witch wished which wicked wish?
SELECT witch.name FROM witch WHERE witch.wish_type = ‘wicked’ AND witch.type = ‘wicked’
Who washed Washington’s white woolen underwear
when Washington’s washer woman went west?
washer.gender = ‘female’
washer.went != ‘west’
washer.washed = ‘underwear’
washer.fabric = ‘wool’
washer.washed_for = ‘Washington’

“For those of us who typically find corporate America’s response to global warming painfully flaccid, economically self-destructive, and morally reprehensible, Halliburton’s most recent contribution to climate change preparedness comes like a puff of fresh air.” – from Treehugger.
Even better is the instruction card:
