A lawyer and an Italian are sitting next to each other on a


long flight.


The lawyer is thinking that Italians are so dumb that he


could get over on them easy...


So the lawyer asks if the Italian would like to play a fun




The Italian 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 Italians 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 Italian ponders, doesn't say a word, reaches in his


pocket pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the




Now, it's the Italian'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




After one hour of searching he finally gives up. He wakes up


the Italian and hands him $500.


The Italian pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.


The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer.


He wakes the Italian up and asks, 'Well, so what goes up a


hill with three legs and comes down with four?'


The Italian reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and


goes back to sleep.


Don't mess with us Italians.
