    First of all, I like woodchucks. They are cool

    Second, a woodchuck could chuck no amount of wood since a woodchuck can't chuck wood. But if a woodchuck could chuck and would chuck some amount of wood, what amount of wood would a woodchuck chuck? *

    Third, if you are looking for a translation then the Russian translation will be as follows:

    Сколько бы дерева смог сгрызть сурок, если бы умел грызть деревья.

    or shorter -> Сколько бы дерева смог сгрызть сурок, если умел бы это делать.

    I've known this phrase for five years already.
