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.
