I find that "A koan has the Buddha nature if it consists entirely of pieces." comes up more often than I'd like. :-)
I just saw it produce the inverse of that: "A koan has the Buddha nature if it contains no pieces." Well, this is why the rules of Zendo require starting with one black-stone koan and one white-stone koan.
And its rule "A koan has the Buddha nature if it consists entirely of weird pieces." should be very easy to guess.
