The Lawyer & The Redneck

A lawyer and a redneck are sitting next to each other on a long flight.

The lawyer is thinking that rednecks are so dumb that he could get over
on them easy...

So the lawyer asks if the redneck would like to play a fun game. The
redneck is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines
and tries to catch a few winks.

The lawyer persists, 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.

This catches the redneck's attention and to keep the lawyer quiet,
agrees to play the game.

The lawyer asks the first question. 'What's the distance from the Earth
to the moon?' The redneck doesn't say a word, reaches in his pocket
pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now, it's the redneck's turn. He asks the lawyer, 'What goes up a hill
with three legs, and comes down with four?'

The lawyer uses his laptop, searches all references. He uses the air
phone; he searches the Net and even the Library of Congress. 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 redneck
and hands him $500.

The redneck pockets the $500 goes right back to sleep.

The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the redneck up
and asks, 'Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down
with four?'

The redneck reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to
