blonde woman and a lawyer were seated next to each other on a flight from LA to NY.
The lawyer asked if she would like to play a fun game?
The blonde, tired, just wanted to take a nap, so she politely declined and rolled over toward the window to catch a few winks.
The lawyer was persistent, though, explaining that the game was easy and a lot of fun. He said, speaking to her back, “I ask you a question, and if you don’t know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vice 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 finally caught the blonde’s attention and, figuring there would be no end to this torment unless she played, she sat up and agreed to play the game.
The lawyer asked the first question: “What’s the distance from the earth to the moon?”
Without saying a word the blonde reached into her purse, pulled out a $5.00 bill and handed it to the lawyer.
“Okay,” grinned the lawyer, “your turn.”
She 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 found no answer.
So he tapped into the air phone with his modem and searched the net and the library of congress – no answer.
Frustrated, he sent e-mails to all his friends and coworkers, to no avail.
After an hour, he awoke the blonde again and sheepishly handed her $500.00.
The blonde thanked him and turned back to get some more sleep.
“Wait!” said the lawyer, who was more than a little miffed. “What’s the answer?”
Again without saying a word, the blonde reached into her purse, handed the lawyer $5.00, and went back to sleep.
And you thought blondes were dumb. 😀
