"A Long Flight"

A lawyer and an elderly Jewish man are sitting next
to each other on a long flight. The lawyer is thinking
that Jews are so dumb that he could get over on
them easily.

So the lawyer asks the Jew if he would like to play a
fun game. The old Jewish man 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 a question and if I don't
know the answer, I will pay you $500." he says.

This catches the Jewish man'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 elderly Jew 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 Jew's turn. He asks the lawyer, "What goes
up a hill with three legs and comes down hill with four?"

The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he
could find on the Net. He sends emails to all the smart
friends he knows, all to no avail. After one hour of
searching, he finally gives up. He wakes up the Jewish
man and hands him $500. The old Jew pockets the $500
and goes back to sleep.

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

The Jew shrugs, reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer
$5 and goes back to sleep.
