A lawyer and a Jamaican are sitting next to each other on a long flight.
The lawyer is thinking that Jamaicans are so dumb that he can fool them easy… So the lawyer asks if the Jamaican would like to play a fun game… The Jamaican is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he
politely declines and tries to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists
and says that the game is a lot of fun.
‘I ask you a question, and if you don’t know the answer, you pay me
only $5; You ask me one, and if I don’t know the answer, I will pay you $500.’
This catches the Jamaican’s attention and to keep the lawyer quiet, he
agrees to play the game.
The lawyer asks the first question.
‘What’s the distance from The Earth to the moon?’
The Jamaican doesn’t say a word, reaches in his pocket pulls out a
five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.
Now, it’s the Jamaican’s turn.
He asks the lawyer, ‘What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?’
The lawyer uses his laptop, searches all the references he knows. 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
Jamaican and hands him $500. The Jamaican pockets the $500 goes right back to sleep.
The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer.
He wakes the Jamaican up and asks, ‘Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?’
The Jamaican reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.
