No Dumb Starlet
A starlet is seated next to a lawyer on a long flight. She craves her
sleep, but he keeps waking her up with his chatter.
"Let's play a trivia game," he suggests. "If I answer incorrectly, I'll
pay you $100. If you are wrong, you owe me $5."
The starlet agrees, and the lawyer goes first. "What's the distance
between the earth and the moon?"
The starlet hands the lawyer $5. Now it's her turn. "What goes up a
mountain on three legs and comes down on four?"
The lawyer is dumbstruck. He scans the Internet, flips through his
pocket encyclopedia, and texts every scientist he can find. No dice.
Hours later, he wakes up the starlet, hands her $100, and asks,
"So what's the answer?"
Without a word, she hands him $5 and goes back to sleep.
