On a trip from LA to NY, a blonde and a lawyer are seated next to one another.
If she’d like to participate in a lighthearted game, the attorney asks. The blonde politely declines and rolls over to the window to take a sleep since she is simply exhausted.
The attorney insists, saying that the game is simple and enjoyable.
“I ask you a question, and if you don’t know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vice versa,” he explains.
She rejects once more and tries to get some rest. Now irritated, the lawyer offers: “Okay, if you don’t know the answer, you give me $5; if I don’t know the answer, I will pay you $500.”
The blonde notices him and accepts the game after concluding that there won’t be any relief from her suffering unless she participates. The first query is posed by the attorney. “How far is the moon away from the earth?”
Without saying a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, takes out a $5 dollar, and offers it to the attorney. The lawyer responds, “Okay, your turn.”
What has three legs that go up a hill and four legs that come down, she asks the attorney. The lawyer is perplexed and pulls out his laptop to check through all of his references, but there is no resolution. He uses his modem to connect to the air phone and searches the internet and the Library of Congress, but there is no response.
He writes emails to all of his friends and coworkers out of frustration, but to no avail.
He wakes the blonde after one hour and gives her $500.00. After saying “thank you,” the blonde turns around to go back to bed. The lawyer wakes the blonde and inquires, “Well, what’s the answer?” the lawyer is more than a little irate. Without saying a word, the blonde hands the lawyer $5.00 from her purse and then resumes sleeping.
