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.
Joke of the Day – Boring Jokes – Irish Jokes
A group of Americans was touring Ireland. One of the women in the group was a real curmudgeon, constantly complaining. The bus seats are uncomfortable the food is terrible, it’s too hot, it’s too cold and the accommodations are awful.
The group arrived at the site of the famous Blarney Stone. “Good luck will be following you all your days, if you kiss the Blarney Stone,” the guide said. “Unfortunately, it’s being cleaned today and so no one will be able to kiss it. Perhaps we can come back tomorrow.”
“We can’t be here tomorrow,” the nasty woman shouted. “We have some other boring tour to go on. So I guess we can’t kiss the stupid stone.”
“Well now,” the guide said, “it is said that if you kiss someone who has kissed the stone, you’ll have the same good fortune.”
“And I suppose you’ve kissed the stone,” the woman scoffed.
“No, ma’am,” the frustrated guide said, “but I’ve sat on it.”
