Santa and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from
Patiyala to New Delhi. The lawyer asks if he would like to play a
fun game. Santa, tired, just wants to take a nap, so he politely
declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The
lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun.
He says, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer,
you pay me fifty rupees, and vice versa." Again, Santa declines and
tries to get some sleep.
The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the
answer, you pay me Rs. 50, and if I don't know the answer, I will
pay you Rs. 5000." This catches Santa's attention and, figuring
there will be no end to this torment, agrees to the game. The lawyer
asks the first question: "What's the distance from the earth to the
moon?" Santa doesn't say a word, reaches into his purse, pulls out a
Rs. 50 bill, and hands it to the lawyer. "Okay," says the lawyer,
"your turn." Santa asks, "What goes up a hill with three legs and
comes back with four legs?" The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his
laptop computer and searches all his references ... no answer.
He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the
Internet and the Library of Congress ... no answer. Frustrated, he
sends e-mails to all his friends and coworkers but to no avail.
After an hour, he wakes Santa and hands him Rs. 5000. Santa thanks
him and turns back to get some more sleep. The lawyer, who is more
than a little miffed, stirs Santa and asks, "Well, what's the
answer?" Without a word, Santa reaches into his purse, hands the
lawyer Rs. 50, and goes back to sleep. And you thought Sardars were
