Question

This is my first post so I hope you enjoy.

I heard this riddle a while back and thought it quite good.

I hope no-one has posted it before.

A man was left stranded on a desert island for 1 month with no water or food.

The only item he had on him was a calender.

How did he survive?

By eating dates and sundaes?

or maybe

..used the laminated cover of the calender to fashion a funnel that would hold water and then used the porous sheets of paper as a filter to filter the salt out of the ocean water so that he had water to drink. Then he unwound and straightened the metal coil that binds the calender and used it to spear fish which he then salt-cured using the day's filter paper and ate.

But it's much more likely that JC has the right answer on this one :D
