A lawyer and an Indian are sitting next to each other on a long flight. The lawyer is thinking that Indians are so dumb that he could get one over on them easy...



So the lawyer asks if the Indian would like to play a fun game.



The Indian is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists, and says that the game is really, really a lot of fun.



"I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only R5; you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you R500," the lawyer says.



This catches the Indians 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 Indian doesn't say a word, reaches in his pocket, pulls out a five-rand coin, and hands it to the lawyer.



Now, it's the Indian'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 Indian and hands him R500. The Indian pockets the R500 and goes right back to sleep.



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



The Indian reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer R5 and goes back to sleep.

OK...The funniest thing about this thread is no one responded for 6 years! lol

Every time I hear an Aboriginal American called an Indian I can't help but laugh at Columbus. Then I remember the name Canada is based on a native word for a village that was thought to be the name of the country. So that makes us the village people. lol

Why does the guy have to be a lawyer? It is an old joke.
Because everybody knows lawyers are the lowest form of life on the face of the Earth.... Solar system, ....Milky Way, ....Universe....

....except that rare breed of attorney that practice in the Sault.;)

I think the joke uses a lawyer because they are known to be well educated and skilled negotiators.

Lawyers are like guns...some are good, some bad. Your view might depend on which end you are on.
