      Hmm… my favourite is probably one from the Hobbit. “Voiceless it cries, wingless flutters, toothless bites, mouthless mutters”

      I like the Monty Hall problem, not only because it is mentioned in the 2008 movie “21”. Wikipedia formulates it as follows (referencing a 1990 magazine):
      “Suppose you’re on a game show, and you’re given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what’s behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, which has a goat. [The host] then says to you, ‘Do you want to pick door No. 2?’ Is it to your advantage to switch your choice?”
