I don't even know if it's really a conundrum
Orthometer: Partisan joke (so sue me)
Don't miss Fr. Erik's conundrum regards the Hildabeast.
To add to this one:
One day while Bill Clinton was president, he was walking along a cliff and pitched over the side and was precariously clutching to an outcropping. Three Boy Scouts were nearby and heard his cries for help and rescued him
Clinton said: Boys, you've saved my life, as president, there are a lot of things I can do to thank you. You each get a wish.
Boy scout #1 says: My dad was in the Navy, I'd love it if you could give me a presidential appointment to the Naval Academy when I'm old enough to go off to college. Clinton says: Yes, of course. Consider it done.
Boy scout #2 says: My dad was in the Army - can I have your appointment to West Point? Clinton: Done.
Boy scout #3 says: My wish is to be buried in Arlington Cemetery.
Clinton was astonished that one so young would be thinking about death. He said to the boy: Son, you have your whole life ahead of you, why would you be thinking a thought like that now?
The boy said: Because when my father finds out I saved your life he's going to kill me!
