    That is a funny question, and I have come across some funny answers.  Some answers try to analyze how much water a cow can contain in its stomach, some analyze how many cows compared to how much water one can hold, etc.  One even said that the answer is 23%, because cow is 3 of the 13 characters in "world's water."

    This was a question to get into Oxford, if I'm correct, but I'd call it a useless question.

      This question was meant to inspire people to think outside their normal boundaries. I don't think it was a useless question, but thanks for answering it anyway.

      You're right.  I realized that after I answered it.  It is a question where the value is the creativity of the answer, not the answer itself.
