The Lawyer And The Blond
This was sent to me via email from my mom on July 18, 2001.
The Lawyer and the Blond . . . (a smart one at that!)
A lawyer and a blonde woman are sitting next to each other on a long flight
from LA to NY. The lawyer leans over to her and asks if she would like to
play a fun game. The blonde is tired and just wants to take a nap, so she
politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks.
The lawyer persists, saying that the game is really easy and a lot of fun.
He explains how the game works: "I ask you a question, and if you don't know
the answer, you pay me, and visa-versa."
Again, she politely declines and tries to get some sleep.
The chauvinistic lawyer figures that since his opponent is a blonde he will
easily win the match, so he makes another offer: "Okay, how about this, if
you don't know the answer you pay me only $5.00, but if I don't know the
answer, I'll pay you $500.00."
This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring that there will be no end
to this torment unless she plays, she agrees to play the game.
The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to
The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches in to her purse, pulls out a
five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.
Now, it's the blonde's turn. She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with
three legs, and comes down with four?"
The lawyer looks at her with a puzzled look. He takes out his laptop
computer and searches all his references. He taps into the Air Phone with
his modem and searches the Net and even the Library of Congress.
Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his co-workers and friends he knows.
All to no avail. After over an hour of searching for the answer he finally
gives up. He wakes the blonde and hands her $500.00. The blonde politely
takes the $500.00 and turns away to get back to sleep.
The lawyer, who is more than a little frustrated, wakes the blonde and asks,
"Well, so what IS the answer?"
Again without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer
$5.00 and goes back to sleep.
