Lawyer And Senior

A lawyer and a senior citizen are sitting next to each other on a
long flight.

The lawyer is thinking that seniors are so dumb that he could get
one over on them easy.

So the lawyer asks if the senior would like to play a fun game.

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

The lawyer persists saying 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.
Then you ask me one, and if I don’t know the answer, I will pay you £500,’ he says.

This catches the senior’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 senior doesn’t say a word, but reaches into his pocket, pulls
out a five pound note, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now it’s the senior’s turn. He asks the lawyer, ‘What goes up a
hill with three legs, and comes down with four?’

The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he could
find on the Net.

He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows; all to no
avail. After an hour of searching, he finally gives up

He wakes the senior and then hands him £500. Senior pockets the
£500 and goes right back to sleep.

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

The senior reaches into his pocket, hands the lawyer £5 and goes
back to sleep.

  3. That’s funny.

    I finished law school at the age of 57, so I guess this senior citizen is in double trouble, huh?

    His first mistake was thinking he could pull one over on a “dumb senior”.
