An English lawyer and an Scotsman are sitting next to each other on a long
train journey. The lawyer is thinking that Scotsmen are so dumb that he could
put something over on them easily. So the lawyer asks if the Scotsman
would like to play a fun game.
The Scotsman is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely
declines and tries to catch a few winks. The English 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 Scotsman’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 Scotsman doesn’t say a word, reaches in his pocket
pulls out a five-pound note, and hands it to the lawyer.
Now, it’s the Scotsman’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 avail. After one hour of
searching he finally gives up. He wakes up the Scotsman and hands him
£500. The Scotsman pockets the £500 and goes right back to sleep..
The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the Scotsman up
and asks, ‘Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down
with four?’ The Scotsman reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer £5 and
goes back to sleep.
Have A Great Day
