Tricky Blonde
A tricky blonde  
-By Dr.Claude Shema-Rutagengwa
A lawyer happened to sit next to a blonde on a long cross-country flight.  
He leaned over to her and asked if she wouldlike to play a fun game: 
"I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5, the you ask me a question, and if I don't know the answer, I pay you $5, and so on, back and forth." The blonde politely declined, saying she was tired and preferred to get some sleep. 
The lawyer thought, "I am much smarter than this woman.  I can easily win."  So he made her another offer he thought she could not refuse: "Okay, how about this: if you don't know the answer you pay me only $5, but if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500."  
The blonde figured that there would be no end to this torment unless she played, so she agreed to play the game. The lawyer asked the first question:
"What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The blonde didn't say a word, reached into her purse, pulled out a five-dollar bill and handed it to the lawyer. "Now it's your turn," the lawyer said. 
She asked the lawyer: "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes back down with four?" 
The lawyer looked at her puzzled.  He took out his laptop computer and searched all his references. He
even connected his computer with his modem via the expensive air-phone to the Internet and searched
everything, including the Library of Congress. No answer.  
Frustrated, he sent emails to all his colleagues and friends, trying to get some help. All to no avail.  After over an hour of searching for the answer he finally gave up. He woke up the blonde and handed her $500.
 The blonde politely took the $500 and turned away to get back to sleep. 
The lawyer, who still could not imagine what the answer was, woke her up again and said, "Now it's my turn again. So what goes up a hill with three legs and comes back down with four?" 
Without saying a word, the blonde reached into her purse, handed the lawyer $5, and went back to sleep.
