Zestz for Laughs : A Gen-Y and a Baby Boomer

A Gen-Y lawyer and a Baby Boomer are sitting next to each other on a long flight.

The lawyer is thinking that baby boomers are so dumb that she could get one over on them easy.

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

The Baby Boomer is tired and just wants to take a nap, so she 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 Baby Boomer 's attention and, to keep the lawyer quiet, she agrees to play the game.

The lawyer asks the first question. 'What's the distance from the Earth to the Moon?'

The Baby Boomer doesn't say a word, but reaches into her handbag, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now it's the Baby Boomer 's turn. She asks the lawyer, 'What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?'

The lawyer uses her laptop and searches all references she can find on the Net.

She sends e-mails to all the smart friends she knows; all to no avail. After an hour of searching, she finally gives up.

She wakes the Baby Boomer and hands her $500. The Baby Boomer took the $500 and goes right back to sleep.

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

The Baby Boomer reaches into her handbag, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.
