# PLANE GAME

A Man and an Woman are setting next to each other on a long flight from LA to NY.
The Woman leans over to the Man and asks if he would like to play a fun game.
The Man just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and rolls over to catch a few winks.
The Woman persists and explains that the game is real and a lot of fun.
She explains "I ask you a question, and if you do not know the answer, you pay me \$5.
Then you ask me a question, and if I do not know the answer, I will pay you \$5."

Again, the Man politely declines and tries to get to sleep.
The Woman, now somewhat agitated, says, "OK, if you do not know the answer you pay me \$5,
and if I don not know the answer, I'll pay you \$50!" This catches the Man's attention,
and he sees no end to this torment unless he plays, so he agrees to the game.
The Man asks the first question. "What is the distance from the Earth to the Moon?"

The Woman does not say a word, she into her purse, pulls out a five dollar bill and hands it to the Man.
Now, it's the Woman's turn. She asks the Man "What goes up a hill on three legs, and comes down on four?"
The Man looks up at her with a puzzled look. He takes out his laptop computer and searches all of his references.
He taps into the Airphone with his modem and searches the net and the Library of Congress.
Frustrated, he sends e-mail to his co-workers, all to no avail.

After half an hour, he wakes the Woman and hands her \$50.
The Woman politely takes the \$50 and turns away to try to get back to sleep.
The Man, more than a little miffed, shakes the Woman and asks "Well, what goes up a hill on three legs and comes down on four?"
Without a word, the Woman reaches into her purse, hands the Man \$5, and turns away to get back to sleep.
