A lawyer and a blonde are sitting next to each other on a long
flight from LA to NY. The lawyer leans over to her and asks if she would
like to play a fun game. The blonde just wants to take a nap, so she
politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks.
The lawyer persists and explains that the game is really easy and a lot
of fun. He explains: “”I ask you a question, and if you don’t
know the answer, you pay me $5, and visa-versa.””
Again, she politely declines and tries to get some sleep.
The lawyer, now somewhat agitated, says, “”Okay, if you don’t know the
answer you pay me $5, and if I don’t know the answer, I will pay you
$50″” figuring that since she is a blonde that he will easily win the
This catches the blonde’s attention and, figuring that there
will be no end to this torment unless she plays, she 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 into her purse, pulls out a
five-dollar bill and hands it to the lawyer.
Now, it’s the blonde’s turn. She asks the lawyer: “”What goes up
a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?””
The lawyer looks at her with a puzzled look.
He takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references.
He taps into the digital cellphone via infra-red wireless connection to
his modem port and searches the Net and the Library of Congress.
Frustrated, he sends E-mail to all his co-workers, friends, clients, and
suppliers that he knows. And then some. All to no avail. After over an
hour, he wakes the blonde and hands her $50. The blonde politely takes
the $50 and turns away to get back to sleep.
The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde
“”Well, so what IS the answer?””
Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the
lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.
