One night, a Metro police officer was stalking out a particularly rowdy bar for possible violations of the DUI laws. Near
closing time, he saw a fellow stumble out of the bar, trip on the curb, and try his keys on five different cars before he found his.
Then, sitting in the front seat, he fumbled around with his keys for several minutes. While this was going on, everyone else in the
bar came out, went to their cars and drove off. Finally, he was able to get his car started and began to pull away. Immediately,
the police officer put on his red lights and stopped him. After reading him his rights the officer administered the Breathalyzer
test. The results showed a reading of 0.0. The puzzled officer demanded to know how that could be. The driver replied, "Tonight,
I'm the designated decoy."
A programmer and an engineer are sitting next to each other on a long flight from LA to NY. The programmer leans over to the
engineer and asks if he would like to play a fun game. The engineer just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and rolls
over to the window to catch a few winks.
The programmer persists and explains that the game is really easy and a lot of fun. He explains, "We ask each other a question,
and whoever doesn't know the answer, they have to pay $5." Again, the engineer politely declines and tries again to get some
The programmer, 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." This catches the engineer's complete attention, and seeing no end to this torment unless he plays,
he agrees to play the game.
The programmer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The engineer doesn't say a word,
but reaches into his wallet, pulls out a five-dollar bill and hands it to the programmer. Now it's the engineer's turn. He asks the
programmer, "What goes up a hill with three legs, and then comes down with four legs?" The programmer looks at him with a
puzzled look. He takes out his laptop computer and searches all he references. He then 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, but, to no avail.
After over an hour, he wakes the engineer and hands him $50. The engineer politely takes the $50 and turns away to get back to
sleep. The programmer, more than a little miffed, shakes the engineer and asks, "Well, so what IS the answer?" Without a word,
the engineer reaches back into his wallet, hands the programmer $5, and goes back to sleep.
