    a pair running in a 3-legged race. the finish line is at the top of the hill, obviously, so when the race is over they separate their legs and walk down normally!

    A dog, with a broken leg....When it goes up it can use only 3 of its legs.So it goes up the hill with 3 legs...The first part is answered.

    The reason why the dog is going up the hill is because there the veterinary Doc is living on the hilltop and he runs a clinic there, and he never comes down.He goes from place to place in a Helicopter which he keeps in his shed behind the clinic.So there is no point in waiting for the Doc to come down!!!

    So the Dog gets to the Doc...the Doc heals the Dog..and the Dog is alright again....Now he comes down the hill with the 4 legs!!!

    Also if an old man with a cane went up hill and came down w/ crutches. Because he gets hurt on the way up and there is a doctor on the hill.^_^


    Actually it doesn't have an answer; it was part of a old joke:-

    A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from LA to NY. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game? The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He explains, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vise versa." Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep. The lawyer, now agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500.00." This catches the blonde's attention and figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game. The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill and hands it to the lawyer. Okay says the lawyer, your turn. She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?" The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references, no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the net and the library of congress, no answer. Frustrated, he send e-mails to all his friends and co-workers, to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the blonde and hands her $500.00. The blonde says, "Thank you," and turns back to get some more sleep. The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, "Well, what's the answer?" Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00 and goes back to sleep. And you thought blondes were dumb.

    A canine, with a broken leg....while it is going up it may use in basic terms 3 of its legs.So it is going up the hill with 3 legs...the 1st section is spoke back. the rationalization why the canine is going up the hill is becoz there the vetinery record is residing on the hilltop and he runs a clininc there, and he on no account comes down.He is going from place to place in a Helicopter which he keeps in his shed at the back of the health center.So there is not any element in waiting for the record to return down!!! So the canine gets to the record...the record heals the canine..and the canine is allright returned....Now he comes down the hill with the 4 legs!!!
