Default boring flight

Bored during a long flight, an eminent scholar leaned over and woke up the sleeping man next to him to ask if he would like to play a game.

"I'll ask you a question," the scholar explained, "and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5. Then you ask me a question, and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $50."

When the man agreed to play, the scholar asked, "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" Flummoxed, the man handed him $5. "Ha!" said the scholar. "It's 238,857 miles. Now it's your turn."

The man was silent for a few moments. Then he asked, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?"

Puzzled, the scholar racked his brains for an hour--but to no avail. Finally he took out his wallet and handed over $50. "Okay, okay, what is the answer?" the scholar asked.

The man said, "I don't know," pulled out a $5 bill, handed it to the scholar, and went back to sleep.
A good cook is the peculiar gift of God. He must be a perfect creature from the brain to the palate, from the palate to the finger's end.

Good one!
Happiness can only be found by concentrating on what you have instead of what you havenít.

Very clever! Thanks for the laugh, Mini.
You can harvest one-half ton of wheat from an acre, but if you grow potatoes instead, that same acre will give you five tons.
