The Marshall

From "Dilbert" cartoon, Sunday Sept.19,2010:
Dilbert's pointy-haired Boss asks "If you are flying in an airplane, and you shoot an arrow at a monkey on the ground, and the monkey throws a coconut to deflect the arrow, how can you tell what time it is?"
Dilbert (the engineer) answers: "There's not enough data".
The obvious answer that engineers miss is: "You look at your watch".
Dilbert's boss says "The correct answer is: You ask the monkey and hope he doesn't hold a grudge."
