A Table Puzzle

Here's another I picked up from the BBC.  It's a two-parter, and we are told that men and women will answer differently.  So far I have tried it on one subject, a woman, and she did indeed answer in the predicted feminine form.  So
  • Part one: you're sitting at a four-legged table. The table wobbles; i.e., one leg is too short.  What do you do?
  • Part two: same problem, except it is a  three legged table. What do you do?  
For an answer, go here.

Providing you consider the verb "wobble" in its most general sense, a 3-legged table could wobble if the joints attaching the legs were loose.

But matchbooks would do you no good.
