Joke about a clever blonde woman – level 3

24-12-2020 15:00

There is a blonde woman who sits next to a lawyer on a plane. The lawyer keeps asking the blonde to play a game of intelligence with him.

The blonde doesn’t want to play, so the lawyer says to her, “If I can’t answer your question, I will give you 50 dollars. If you can’t answer my question, you will give me 5 dollars.” The lawyer thinks he cannot lose and the blonde finally accepts his offer.

The lawyer asks first, “What is the distance between the Earth and the nearest star?”

Without saying a word the blonde gives him 5 dollars. Then the blonde asks, “What goes up a hill with 3 legs and comes back down the hill with 4 legs?”

The lawyer is confused. He takes several hours, he looks up everything on his laptop, calls his friends but finally, angry and frustrated, he gives up and pays the blonde 50 dollars.

The blonde puts the 50 dollars into her purse without saying a word, but the lawyer keeps asking, “What is the answer to your question?”

Without saying a word, the blonde gives him 5 dollars.
