An attractive retiree and a Lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game.

The retiree, tired, just wants to take a nap, politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few sinks.

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 $5, and vice versa.”

Again, she declines and tries to get some sleeop.

The lawyer, now agitated, says, “Okay, if you don´t know the answer, I will pay you $500.”

This catches the retiree´s attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game.

The lawyer asks the first questin: “What´s the distance from the earth to the moon?”

The retiree doesn´t say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5 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, no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the net and the Library of Congress, no answer. Frusrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and coworker, to no avail. Afrter and hour, he wakes the retiree, and hands her $500.

She says, “Thank you,” and turns back to get some more sleep.

The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the retiree and asks, “Well, what´sthe answer?”

Without a word, she reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.
