Seniors rule!!!
A lawyer and a senior citizen are sitting next to each other on a long flight.

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

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

The senior is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines
and tries to catch a few winks.

The lawyer persists, saying 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. Then
you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will
pay you $500, he says.

This catches the senior'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 senior doesn't say a word, but reaches into his pocket, pulls out a five-dollar
bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now it's the senior'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
an hour of searching, he finally gives up.

He wakes the senior and hands him $500. The senior pockets the $500
and goes right back to sleep.

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

The senior reaches into his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.
