A blonde chick found herself sitting next to a lawyer on an airplane. Bored, the lawyer kept bugging the blonde wanting her to play a game of intelligence (lawyers like easy prey). Finally, the lawyer offered her 10 to 1 odds, said every time the blonde could not answer one of his questions she owed him $5, but every time he could not answer hers heâ€™d give her $50.00. The lawyer figured he could not lose, and the blonde reluctantly accepted.
The lawyer first asked, â€œWhat is the distance between the Earth and the nearest star?â€ Without saying a word the blonde handed him $5.
The blonde then asked, â€œWhat goes up a hill with 3 legs and comes back down the hill with 4 legs?â€
The lawyer looked puzzled. He spent nearly an hour, looking up everything he could on his laptop and even placing numerous air-to-ground phone calls, trying to find the answer. Finally, angry and frustrated, he gave up and paid the blonde $50.00
The blonde put the $50 into her purse without comment, but the lawyer insisted, â€œWhat is the answer to your question?â€
Without saying a word, the blonde handed him $5.
