How many peppers did Peter Piper pick?

If peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, how many peppers did peter piper pick if peter piper picked the peck of pickled peppers to be picked?

Answer #1

Well peter piper sounds gay so maybe he only picked 1 which would be his pickled pepper in his pickled pants! xD

Answer #2

and what is he doing with so many damn pickled peppers?

The answer: They are pickled… which means he bought them at a grocery store and he didn’t have to pick any peppers! :)

Answer #3

And how big were these peppers… If I had the average dimensions of each said “pepper” then I could divide its volume into the volume contained in the peck to result in the estimated answer for your proposed question of, “how many peppers did Peter Piper pick”. So, if you could kindly give me the length of the pepper with the circumference of the pepper at four seperate areas, then I can start plugging the math away to answer your question. :)

Answer #4

the answer is zero

Answer #5

I’m thinking 14. But, that’s only an educated guess.

Answer #6

The answer is right after the answer to “How much wood would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?”

Answer #7

Okay, lets say the peppers are four inches in length, and have circumferences of 2”, 1.5”, 1” and 0.5”! lol

Answer #8

42!!! LOL why does he need pickled peppers?? I want one!! That greaty Peter

Answer #9

A peck is a 1/4 bushel or about 10-14 lbs. Since we don’t know what kind of pepper Peter was picking, we don’t know how many.

Answer #10

Ugh… I think I’m dizzy!

I think I’ll go with the ‘Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ answer to life, the universe and everything:
