Post your favorite koans here!
Koans are riddles that have no definitive answer (I believe, I may be wrong)
"You meet a Zen master on the road. You can neither ignore him/her or speak to him/her. What to do?"
"Punch him in the nose!"
Someone please post more on the useage and history of the koan.

Someone sent me this one:
"If you have ice cream I will give you some.
If you have no ice cream I will take it away from you."
It is an ice cream koan.
