A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a long haul flight. The lawyer asks the blonde if she’d like to play a fun game.
The blonde politely declines as she is tired and just wants to take a nap.
But the lawyer persists, explaining that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He explains the game: “I’ll ask you a question, and if you don’t know the answer, you owe me $5 – and vice versa.”
Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer, now agitated, says, “Okay, if you don’t know the answer you pay me $5.00, and, if I don’t know the answer, I’ll give you $500.00.”
This catches the blonde’s attention and she quickly changes her mind.
The lawyer asks first: “What’s the distance from the earth to the moon?”
The blonde doesn’t say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 note and hands it to the lawyer.
Now the blonde’s turn, she asks the lawyer, “What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?”
This puzzles the lawyer who takes out his laptop and searches through his files – but finds no answer.
Thinking about the $500 bet, he decides it’s worth buying a connection to the plane’s air WiFi. He finds no answer on the internet, and frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and coworkers, to no avail.
After an hour, he wakes the blonde, and hands her $500.00. The blonde says,”Thank you,” and turns back to get some more sleep.
The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, taps her shoulder and asks,”Well, what’s the answer!?”
Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep.
