Seemingly Trivial Unanswered Problems In Discourse

I just read Steve Martin's memoir Born Standing Up yesterday (thanks Gwydion), and thinking back over his early albums (all of which I still have memorized), it inspired me to start a new occasional series of posts that I will call "Seemingly Trivial Unanswered Problems In Discourse" which will go by the acronym D.U.C.K.

The theme will be to take a question that should not be asked, a question that seems to have no answer or a perfectly trivial answer and actually have a discussion about it for no good reason.

Our first one is inspired by both Steve Martin and Hanno.

Comparing apples to oranges, which one is better?
