The lawyer and the Aussie

Heard anything funny today about our pollies (their always good for a laugh). Get in touch with that inner Irishman and let’s hear a joke or two.

The lawyer and the Aussie

Postby Ricklanga » Fri Feb 13, 2009 5:36 pm

A lawyer and an Aussie are sitting next to each other on a long flight. The lawyer is thinking that Aussies are so dumb that he could get over on them easy...So the lawyer asks if the Aussie would like to play a fun game.

The Aussie 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 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 Aussies 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 Aussie doesn't say a word, reaches in his pocket pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now, it's the Aussies 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 Aussie and hands him $500. The Aussie pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.

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

The Aussie reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.
It always rains on tents. Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, against prevailing winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent.
