Bored during a long flight, an eminent scholar leaned over
and woke up the sleeping man next to him to ask if he would
like to play a game.

“I’ll ask you a question,” the scholar explained, “and if
you don’t know the answer, you pay me $5. Then you ask me a
question, and if I don’t know the answer, I’ll pay you $50.”

When the man agreed to play, the scholar asked, “What’s the
distance from the earth to the moon?” Flummoxed, the man
handed him $5. “Ha!” said the scholar. “It’s 238,857 miles.
Now it’s your turn.”

The man was silent for a few moments. Then he asked, “What
goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?”

Puzzled, the scholar racked his brains for an hour–but to
no avail. Finally he took out his wallet and handed over
$50. “Okay, okay, what is the answer?” the scholar asked.

The man said, “I don’t know,” pulled out a $5 bill, handed
it to the scholar, and went back to sleep.
