A smart blonde joke

Another one making the rounds in the email:

A lawyer and a blonde woman are sitting next to each other on a long flight. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game.

The blonde is tired and just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and tries to catch a few winks.

But the lawyer persists, insisting that the game is a lot of fun. "I ask you a question," he tells her, "and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5. But then you get to ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $500."

This catches the blonde's attention. To keep him 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. She just reaches in to her purse, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now it's the blonde's turn: She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?"

The lawyer uses his laptop, searches all references. He uses the Airphone; he searches the Net and even the Library of Congress. 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. The blonde takes the $500 and goes back to sleep.

The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes her up and asks, "Well, so what does go up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?"

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


I know this is intruding on your territory, Bee, but it had a lawyer in it too... and I need the laugh today.
