A woman and a cocky lawyer were seated next to each other on a flight from L.A. to New York. The lawyer asked if she would like to play a fun game. The woman, tired, just wanted to sleep, so she politely declined and rolled over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persisted, saying that the game was easy and a lot of fun."I ask you a question," he explained, "and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vise versa." Again, she declined and tried to get some sleep. The lawyer, now agitated, said, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00."This caught the woman's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she played, agreed to the game. The lawyer asked the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The woman didn't say a word, reached into her purse, pulled out a $5.00 bill and handed it to the lawyer."Okay," said the lawyer, "your turn." The woman asked the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?" The lawyer, puzzled, took out his laptop computer and searched all his references, but couldn't find the answer. He tapped into the air phone with his modem and searched the Internet and the Library of Congress; no answer.After an hour, he woke the woman and handed her $500. The woman said "Thank you" and turned back to get some more sleep. The lawyer, more than a little miffed, woke the woman and asked, "Well, what's the answer?"Without a word, the woman reached into her purse, handed the lawyer $5.00 and went back to sleep.
