    A lawyer and a Hillbilly are sitting next to each other on a long
    flight. The lawyer asks if the Hillbilly would like to play a fun game.

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

    The lawyer persists, 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."
    This catches the Hillbilly's attention and to keep the lawyer quiet,
    agrees to play the game.

    The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth
    to the moon?"

    The Hillbilly 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 Hillbilly's turn. He asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill
    with three legs, and comes down with four?"

    The lawyer uses his laptop, searches all references. He uses the
    Airphone; he searches the Net and even the Library of Congress. 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
    Hillbilly and hands him $500.

    The Hillbilly pockets the $500 goes right back to sleep.
    The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the Hillbilly
    up and asks, "Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes
    down with four?"

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