I'm totally stuffed for a question though! How about "Why does my computer correctly think it's 18:XX when Palimpsest says I posted at 16:XX and yet I've only crossed one time zone?"

Okay. Here is an impossible puzzle:

It's either 'ultimate' or 'green'.

No joy so far. I'd love to know what "ultimate" and "green" connect to!

If you want a clue, perhaps this would have been a fairer way to put it.

Is it a doctor at the top of his profession?

Or perhaps a variant of a "knock knock" joke, in which case:

Doctor Who?

JfP I wonder if you're on to something?

Whenever I look at it, I think of those old jokes, like

Patient: Doctor, doctor, sometimes I think I'm a teepee and sometimes I think I'm a wigwam.
Doctor: Your problem, sir, is that you are two tents.

I know, I know... I'm sorry I'm about to hit enter.

And then there's:
•Doctor, I can't help thinking nobody's interested in me.
•Next patient, please.
