  • A couple of Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.


    Could you build up a mirror of that pun using the standard idiom here parodied?

  • A couple of Eskimos sitting in a kayak had caught two fishes. They sunddenly got a bit chilly. So they lit a fire in the craft with the two fishes they had caught. Unsurprisingly they got warmed up and suddenly felt starving. They kept being starved, proving once again that you can't have your cake and eat it.


    (a bit farfetched, I confess)
