So there was a rich Russian guy who went to Spain for his summer holidays.
The guy was having dinner at a restaurant.
The guy was a boaster. He called over the waiter, "Manuel come here", so the waiter went over to the table.
The rich Russian guy told the waiter that back home he was the most intellegent man. He asked Manuel if he wanted to play a little question and answer
game. Manuel agreed. He said "look these are the rules, I ask you a question and if you dont know the answer, you have to give me 5 euros, then you
ask me a question and if I dont know the answer, I have to give you 500 euros". The Russian was sure that his intellegence was superior to the waiter
So Manuel agreed to the rules, "ok what is the question then?" asked the waiter.
So the Russian guy asked him "what is the distance between the Earth and the Sun?"
The Spanish waiter did not know this and so he reached for his pocket and handed 5 euros over to the Russian guy.
"Ok" said the Russian guy. "Now its your time to ask me a question, but I must warn you, there is hardly anything I dont know".
By this time a little crowd had gathered just out of curiosity.
So Manuel scratched his head for a second and then asked the question;
"What has 3 legs when it goes up, and then four legs when it comes down?"
The Russian could not believe it, here was a question he did not know.
After some considerable time, he gave up.
The Russian guy handed over 500 euros and Manuel was very happy.
"Ok, so whats the answer?" asked the Russian guy.
Manuel laughed, then he dug into his pocket and took out 5 euros and said "heres 5 euros, I dont know the answer".
