A lawyer and a blond were sitting next to each other on a flight from
Durban to Cape Town. The lawyer leans over to her and asks if she
would like to play a fun game. The blonde just wants to sleep so she
politely declines and faces the window to catch a few winks. The
lawyer persists and explains that the game is really easy and a lot of
fun. He explains "I'll ask you a question and if you don't know the
answer you pay me R50 and vice versa."
Again she politely declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer,
now somewhat agitated says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer,
you pay me R50 and if I don't know the answer I will pay you R5000."
This catches the blonde's attention and figuring that there will be no
end to the 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 blonde does not say a word, reaches into
her purse, pulls out a R50 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 throws her a puzzled look. He takes out his laptop
computer and searches all references. Frustrated, he emails all his
friends and co-workers, nobody has any help. Then, while the plane
is getting ready to land, he wakes the blonde and hands her the
The blonde thanks him and puts it in her purse. The lawyer, who is
more than miffed, says OK and asks, "Well, so what's the answer?"
Without a word she reaches into her purse again and hands him R50.
