Two consultants

A McKinsey Consultant and an Andersen Consultant are sitting next to each other
on a long flight from LA to NY. The McKinsey Consultant leans over to the
Andersen Consultant and asks if he would like to play a fun game. The Andersen
Consultant just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and rolls over to
the window to catch a few winks. The McKinsey Consultant persists and explains
that the game is real easy and a lotta fun. He explains "I ask you a question,
and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5. Then you ask me a question,
and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $5."


Again, the Andersen Consultant politely declines and tries to get to sleep.
The McKinsey Consultant, now somewhat agitated, says, "OK, if you don't know
the answer you pay me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $50!"

This catches the Andersen Consultant's attention, and he sees no end to this
torment unless he plays, so he agrees to the game. The McKinsey Consultant
asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?"

The Andersen Consultant doesn't say a word, but reaches into his wallet, pulls
out a five dollar bill and hands it to the McKinsey Consultant. Now, it's the
Andersen Consultant's turn. He asks the McKinsey Consultant "What goes up a
hill with three legs, and comes down on four?"

The McKinsey Consultant looks up at him with a puzzled look. He takes out his
laptop computer and searches all of his references. He taps into the Airphone
with his modem and searches the net and the Library of Congress. He hooks into
the McKinsey Knowledgebase, and consults with his peers around the world-all to
no avail. After about an hour, he wakes the Andersen Consultant and hands him
$50. The Andersen Consultant politely takes the $50 and turns away to try to
get back to sleep.

The McKinsey Consultant, more than a little miffed, shakes the Andersen
Consultant and asks "Well, so what's the answer?"

Without a word, the Andersen Consultant reaches into his wallet, hands the
McKinsey Consultant $5, and turns away to get back to sleep.
