Largest island in a lake on an island in a lake on an island

Talk about some recursion.
Since chunking mechanisms use a lot of recursion, perhaps we may want to start a class on them by visiting the largest island in a lake on an island in a lake on an island.

THIS IS THE ORIGINAL SOURCE, and kudos to them!

(All I've done was mash it up; the credit is all theirs).

I'm gonna take a digger on that island in a lake on an island in a lake on an island and dig a big pond and fill it with water.
Then I'm gonna take a spade and make a li'l island in that pond, and on that li'l island I'm gonna make a puddle and fill that with water.
Then I'm gonna drop a brick in that puddle so that the hollow of the brick is sticking up and I'm gonna fill the hollow of that brick with water.
I'm gonna stick an egg cup to the bottom of the hollow in the brick and then I'm gonna fill that egg cup with water, and in that egg cup I'm gonna chuck in a thimble and and fill it with water.
In the bottom of that thimble I'm gonna... I'm gonna... I'm gonna...
That's anyone's guess.
