Egypt Vs. America

I've been dragging you all lately to the gloomy dark mood I've been in . So , here is something to cheer everyone a little bit . It's rather old but I hope it does .

An Egyptian and an American are seated next to eachother on a flight from New York. The American asks if he would like to play a fun-game. The Egyptian, tired, just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The American 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 $5, and vice versa." Again, the Egyptian declines and tries to get some sleep. The American, now worked up, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer,
you pay me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you$500." This gets the sardar's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment, agrees to the game. The American asks the first question, "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The Egyptian doesn't say a word, reaches into his wallet, pulls out a $5 bill, and hands it to the American. "Okay," says the American, "your turn." So the Sardar asks, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?"The American thinks about it. No answer. Puzzled, he 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. Checks the input. All to no avail! Finally, a long time later, he wakes the Egyptian and hands him $500. The Egyptian thanks him and turns back to get his sleep. The American, more than a little miffed, stirs the Egyptian and asks, "Well, what's the answer?" Without a word, the Egyptian reaches into his wallet, hands the American $5, and goes back to sleep!

Hehe ... Moral of the story : Don't mess with an Egyptian when he's taking a nap !!
Call us thieves but we are smart legal ones ...LOL
