Lawyer and a Blonde A lawyer and a blonde happened to be sitting next to each other on a long flight from L.A. to New york. The lawyer leans over to her and asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde is tired and just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists, saying that the game is really easy and a lot of fun. He explains how the game works. " I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me, and vice versa." Again, the blonde politely refuses and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer figures that since his opponent is blonde he will easily win the match, so he makes another offer. "Okay how about this. If you don't know the answer you pay me only $5, but if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500." This catches the blondes attention and, figuring that there will be no end to the torment unless she plays along, she agrees to play 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 and hands the lawyer a $5 bill. Now its the blondes turn. She asks the lawyer, "What goes uphill with three legs, and comes down with four?" The lawyer looks at her puzzled. He takes out his laptop and searches all his references. He taps into the Air-phone with his modem and searches the net and even the library of Congress. Frustrated he sends E-mails out to all his coworkers and friends he knows....All to no avail. After over an hour of searching for the answer he finally gives up. He wakes the blonde up and hands her $500. The blonde politely takes it and turns away to get back to sleep. The lawyer, who cannot imagine what the answer is, and is going nuts trying to figure it out, is more than a little frustrated! He wakes the blonde and asks, "Well what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?" The blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer a $5 bill and says, "Hell if I know" and goes back to sleep.
