A $500 Question

A lawyer and a stunning blonde are sitting next to each other on a long flight.

The lawyer is thinking that blondes are so dumb that he could easily take advantage of the lady, so the lawyer asks the blonde if she would he like to play a fun game. The lady is tired and just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and tries to catch a few winks.


The lawyer persists, and says that the game is a lot of fun. I ask you a question, and if you don’t know the answer, you pay me only $5; you ask me one, and he says, if I don’t know the answer, I will pay you $500.

This catches the blonde’s attention and to keep the lawyer quiet, 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 pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now, it’s her turn,…she asks the lawyer: ‘What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?’

The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he could find on the Internet. He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows, all to no avail. After one hour of searching, he finally gives up. He wakes up the blonde and hands her $500.

With a satisfied smile, the blonde put the $500 securely in her purse and goes right back to sleep. The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the blonde up and asks, ‘Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?’

The blonde shrugs, reaches in her purse again, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.
