I owe this to Pauline…I might as well share this with all my readers.
A lawyer and a Chinese are sitting next to each other on a long flight.The lawyer is thinking that all Chinese are so dumb that he could get over on them, easy.So the lawyer asks if the Chinese would like to play a fun game. The Chinese 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, he
says. This catches the Chinese’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
Chinese 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 Chinese’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 one hour of searching he finally
gives up. He wakes up the Chinese and hands him $500. The Chinese
pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.The lawyer is going nuts
not knowing the answer.
He wakes the Chinese up and asks, ‘Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four? The Chinese reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.
Don’t messÂ …..with Chinese ….ooh…!
