    All I got at work when I asked this was a bunch of blank stares.

    Name the three-dimensional geometric figure exhibiting the following two properties:
    infinite surface area and zero volume

    Hints (no fair Googling or hitting up Wikipedia)
    It has a topological dimension of one
    It is a closed set
    It has a Lebesgue measure of zero

    I suspect there's at least one person out there who will get this almost instantly.

    Good job you weren't in a crowd or you'd have got an even bigger bunch of blank stares.

    Some of us are mere mortals you know. I'll save this one for the next party I go to.

    I use one of those to wash my Lexus; leaves absolutely no scratches!
