A blonde and a lawyer are seated
next to each other on a flight from
LA to NY. The lawyer asks if she
would like to play a game. The
blonde, who' s tired and just wants
to take a nap, politely declines and
rolls over to the window to catch a
few winks. The lawyer persists and
says the game is easy and a lot of
fun. He explains, ''I ask you a
question, and if you don' t know the
answer, you pay me . 00, 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 . 00,
and if I don' t know the answer, I
will pay you . 00." This catches
the blonde' s attention; and figuring
there will be no end to this torment
unless she plays, she agrees to the
The lawyer asks the first question:
What' s the distance from the earth
to the moon?" The blonde doesn' t
say a word, reaches into her purse,
pulls out a . 00 bill, and hands it to
the lawyer. "Okay," says the
lawyer, "it' s your turn."
She asks the lawyer, "What goes up
a hill with three legs but comes
down with four legs?"
The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his
laptop computer and searches all
his answer. He taps
into the earphone with his modem
and searches the Net and the
Library of answer.
Frustrated, he sends to all
his friends and coworkers, to no
avail. After an hour, he wakes the
blonde and hands her 5500.
The blonde says "Thank you" and
turns back to get some more sleep.
The lawyer, who is more than a
little miffed, wakes the blonde and
asks, "Well, what' s the answer?"
Without a word, the blonde reaches
into her purse, hands the lawyer
00, and goes back to sleep.
