Jokes: An English Lawyer And A

Scotsman



An English lawyer and an Scotsman are sitting next to each other on a long flight.
The lawyer is thinking that Scotsmen are so dumb that he could put something over on them easily.
So the lawyer asks if the Scotsman would like to play a fun game.

The Scotsman is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks.
The English lawyer persists, and says 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, he says.
This catches the Scotsman's attention and to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game.

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

Now, it's the Scotsman's turn.
He asks the lawyer,
'What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?'
The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he could find on the Net.
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 Scotsman and hands him 500.
The Scotsman pockets the 500 and goes right back to sleep.

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

The Scotsman reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer 5 and goes back to sleep.
Don't mess with the Scots.
