It may be something else, but I think it's a sort of tongue-twister, but not a very severe one.

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Sally sells seashells down by the seashore.
Thanks, Philip.

Is "chuck" used in this sense?
3 chuck (transitive verb)
2 a : TOSS, THROW b : DISCARD chucked his old shirt* *chuck it out with the trash* c : DISMISS, OUST — used especially with out *was chucked out of office
[M-W's Col. Dic.]

Please let me know.

i saw a saw which could not saw ? will you please explain this idiom in simple words?
Hi,

It's not an idiom.
It's just a sentence that tries to play a little bit with the word 'saw'.

RIght Answer is: 'i saw' ( I watch) 'a saw' ( a ripper) which could not saw ( which could not rip).

Ripper (saw) means wood cut machine.

Ok

it means that I saw ( second form of see ) a saw ( a wood cutting tool ) which could not saw . ( cannot or not able to cut ) .

I watched a sawmill which could not saw.
