A $5 question related to Heel Pain :)

Posted by Bob G. on 10/08/03 at 23:31 (132990)

A Podiatrist and a Heel Pain Sufferor are sitting next to each other on a long flight to a Heel Pain Conference. The Pod leans over to her and asks if she would like to play a fun game. The HP Sufferor just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks.

The Pod persists and explains that the game is really easy and a lot of fun. He explains, 'I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5, and visa-versa.' Again, she politely declines and tries to get some sleep.

The Pod, now somewhat agitated, says, 'Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $50!' figuring that since she is in pain that he will easily win the match.

This catches the HP Sufferor's attention and, figuring that there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game.

The Pod asks the first question. 'What's the distance from the earth to the moon?' The Sufferor doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5 bill and hands it to the Pod.

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

The Pod looks at her with a puzzled look. He takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references. He taps into the Airphone with his modem and searches the net and the Library of Congress. Frustrated, he sends E-mails to all his co-workers and friends he knows. All to no avail.

After an hour, the Pod wakes the HP Sufferor and hands her $50. The Sufferor takes the $50 and turns away to get back to sleep.

The Pod, who is more than a little miffled, wakes her and asks, 'Well, so what IS the answer!?'

Without a word, she reaches into her purse, hands the Pod $5, and goes back to sleep.
