Topic tags/keywords: humor trick question

A lawyer and a farmer are seated next to each other on a long flight. The lawyer is thinking that he could get one over on the hayseed seated next to him…So the lawyer asks if the farmer if he would like to play a game.
The farmer is tired and wants to take a nap, so he politely declines. The lawyer persists and says that the game is lots of fun. I ask you a question,and if you don’t know the answer, you pay me $5; you ask me one, and if I don’t know the answer I will pay you $500. This catches the farmer’s 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 farmer doesn’t say a word,reaches in his pocket pulls out a $5 bill and hands it to the lawyer.
Now, it’s the farmer’s turn. He asks the lawyer,”What goes up hill with three legs, and comes down hill with four legs?” The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he find on the net. He e-mails to all the smart friends he knows, all to no avail. After an hour of searching he finally gives up. He wakes up the farmer and hands him $500. The farmer pockets the $500 and goes back to sleep.
The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the farmer up and asks,”Well so what goes up hill with three legs and comes down hill with four?” The farmer reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer a $5 bill, and goes back to sleep.
