“Lawyer and The Genius Woman”
A 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 woman was tired, and just wanted to take a nap.
She politely declined and rolled over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He explains,
“I ask you a question, and if you don’t know the answer, you pay me five dollars, and vice versa.”
Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer, now agitated, says,
“Okay, if you don’t know the answer you pay me five dollars, and if I don’t know the answer, I will pay you five hundred dollars.”
This catches the woman’s attention, and figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game. The lawyer asks the first question.
“What’s the distance from the earth to the moon?”
The woman doesn’t say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a five dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.
“Okay,” says the lawyer, “your turn.”
She asks the lawyer,
“What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four legs?”
The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references, but finds no answer. He taps into the in-flight wifi and searches the internet, still no answer. He logs into the library of congress and searches, but still no answer.
Frustrated, he sends emails to all his friends and coworkers, but to no avail.
After an hour, he wakes the woman, and hands her five hundred dollars. The woman says, “Thank you,” and turns back to get some more sleep.
The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the woman and asks,
“Well, what’s the answer?”
Without a word, the woman reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer five dollars, and goes back to sleep.
