The Plane Trip

A lawyer and a blonde are sitting next to each other on an airplane. The lawyer gets bored, so he looks over to the blond and smiles, thinking maybe he can make use of his time. “Hey,” he says to the blonde, “Do you want to play a game?” The blonde shakes her head and goes back to her reading.

Five minutes later, the lawyer asks her again. She shakes her head again. When the lawyer asks her for a third time, she is exasperated and finally asks him what the game is just to get this lawyer off her back.

“It’s simple. I ask you a question. If you don’t know the answer, you give me five bucks. Then you ask me a question, and if I don’t know the answer, I’ll give you five bucks.” Seeing the blonde looks skeptical, he smiles, thinking she doesn’t look very smart so he’ll still make money if he changes things around a little bit. “Fine, how about this – if I get the question you ask me wrong, I pay you a HUNDRED bucks instead.” Finally the blonde shrugs and looks at the man.


“How many miles are there from the earth to the sun?” asks the lawyer. The blonde silently reaches into her purse and hands him five dollars. The lawyer smiles. “Your turn,” he says in a friendly tone of voice. The blonde paused, then said, “What has 7 legs in the daytime and 2 legs at night?

The lawyer was stumped by this. He took out his laptop and emailed all his colleagues, to no avail. Finally he shakes his head and hands the blonde a hundred dollar bill. He sits in silence for a moment, then says, “So what’s the answer?”

The blonde silently reaches into her purse and hands the lawyer a five dollar bill.
