Jamaican Plane Quiz
An American lawyer and a Jamaican man happen to be sitting next to each other on a long flight from L.A. to New York. The lawyer leans over to him and asks if he would like to play a fun game. The Jamaican is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks.

The lawyer persists, saying that the game is really easy and a lot of fun. He explains how the game works .."I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me, and vice-versa." Again, the Jamaican politely declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer figures that since his opponent is a just a Jamaican, he will easily win the match, so he makes another offer.
"Okay, how about this, If you don't know the answer you pay me only $5, but if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $500." This catches the Jamaican's attention and, figuring thatthere will be no end to this torment unless he plays, he agrees to play
the game.

The lawyer asks the first question.
"What's the distance from the earth to
the moon?"The Jamaican doesn't say a word, reaches
in to his wallet, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer. Now, it's the Jamaican's turn. He asksthe lawyer . . "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four? The lawyer looks at him with a puzzled
look. He takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references.He taps into the Air phone with his modem and searches the Net and even
the Library of Congress.
Frustrated he sends E-mails to all his
co-workers and friends he knows. All to no avail.

After over an hour ofsearching for the answer he finally gives up. He wakes the Jamaican and hands him $500. The Jamaican politely takes the $500 and turns away to get back to
sleep. The lawyer, who cannot imagine what the answer is, and is going nuts trying to figure it out, is more than a little frustrated!
He wakes the Jamaican and asks . .."Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?"
The Jamaican reaches into his wallet,hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.
