The Game: An American lawyer and a Nigerian are sitting next to each other on a long flight. The lawyer believes that Nigerians are so dumb that he could put something over on them easily, So the lawyer asks if the Nigerian would like to play a fun game.
The Nigerian is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks.
The American lawyer persists, and says that the game is a lot of fun. â€œI ask you a question, and if you donâ€™t know the answer, you pay me only $5; you ask me one, and if I donâ€™t know the answer, I will pay you $500,â€ he says.
This catches the Nigerianâ€™s attention and to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game.
The lawyer asks the first question. â€œWhatâ€™s the distance from The Earth to the Moon?â€
The Nigerian doesnâ€™t say a word, reaches in his pocket pulls out a $5 bill, and hands it to the lawyer.
Now, itâ€™s the Nigerianâ€™s turn. He asks the lawyer, â€œWhat goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?â€
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 Nigerian and hands him $500.
The Nigerian pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep. The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer.
He wakes the Nigerian up and asks, â€œWell, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?â€
The Nigerian reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes
back to sleep.
Donâ€™t mess with Omo 9ja!..
