YOU CAN'T CON A CON!
A con-man and a senior citizen were sitting next to each other on a long flight.
The con man thought that seniors are so dumb that he could get one over on her easily.
The con man asked if the senior would like to play a fun game.
The senior was tired and just wanted to take a nap, so she politely declined and tried to catch a few winks.
The con man persisted, and said that the game would be a lot of fun and said, "Ill ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5.00. Then you ask me a question, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00."
That piqued the senior's interest and, to keep the con man quiet, she agreed to play the game.
The con man asked the first question. "What's the distance from the Earth to the Moon?"
The senior didn't say a word, but reached into her purse, pulled out a five-dollar bill, and handed it to the con man.
Then it was the senior's turn. She asked the con man, "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?"
The senior dozed off.
The con man used his laptop to search all references he could find on the internet.
He hurriedly sent e-mails to all the smart friends he knew; all to no avail. After an hour of searching, he finally gave up.
He woke the senior and handed her $500.00. The senior pocketed the $500.00 and went right back to sleep.
The con man was going nuts not knowing the answer. He woke up the senior and asked, "Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?"
The senior reached into her purse, hands the con man $5.00, and goes back to sleep.
You can't con a con!
