Programmer & Engineer

A Programmer and an Engineer were sitting next to each other on an airplane. The Programmer leans over to the Engineer and asks if he wants to play a fun game.

The Engineer just wants to sleep so he politely declines, turns away and tries to sleep.

The Programmer persists and explains that it’s a real easy game. He explains, ‘I ask a question and if you don’t know the answer you pay me $5. Then you ask a question and if I don’t know the answer I’ll pay you $5.’

Again the Engineer politely declines and tries to sleep. The Programmer, now somewhat agitated, says, ‘O.K., if you don’t know the answer you pay me $5 and if I don’t know the answer I pay you $50! ‘

Now, that got the Engineer’s attention, so he agrees to the game.

The Programmer asks the first question, ‘What’s the distance from the earth to the moon?’

Then Engineer doesn’t say a word and just hands the Programmer $5.

Now, it’s the Engineer’s turn. He asks the Programmer, ‘What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down on four?’

The Programmer looks at him with a puzzled look, takes out his laptop computer, looks through all his references and after about an hour wakes the Engineer and hands the Engineer $50.

The Engineer politely takes the $50 turns away and tries to return to sleep.

The Programmer, a little miffed, asks, ‘Well what’s the answer to the question?’

Without a word, the Engineer reaches into his wallet, hands $5 to the Programmer, turns away and returns to sleep.

Hahaha!
