A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from Sydney to Brisbane, so the lawyer asks the woman if she’d like to play a game to pass the time.
But the blonde, very tired, just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over toward the window to catch a few winks.
The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. “I ask you a question and if you don’t know the answer you pay me $5 and vice versa,” he says.
Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep. But the lawyer is determined not to let this rest, so he says “Okay, if you don’t know the answer you pay me $5 and if I don’t know the answer, I’ll pay you $500.”
This finally catches the blonde’s attention and, figuring there will be no end to the torment unless she plays, agrees to the game. The lawyer asks the first question, “What’s the distance from the earth to the moon?”. The blonde doesn’t say a word, reaches in her purse, pulls out a $5 bill and hands it over to the lawyer.
“Okay,” says the lawyer, “your turn.” So the woman asks the lawyer, “What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?”.
The lawyer, puzzled, thinks for a long time but doesn’t have a clue. So he takes out his laptop and searches the internet but can’t find answer. Frustrated, he sends an email to all his friends and colleagues, all to no avail. Meanwhile, the blonde has got tired of waiting and has gone to sleep.
After an hour, the lawyer wakes the blonde and hands her $500.
The blonde merely says “Thank you”, and turns back to get some more sleep. But the lawyer, more than a little annoyed, wakes her again and demands, “Well, what’s the answer?”.
Without a word, the blonde reaches in her purse, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.
