An Andersen Consultant and a Deloitte Consultant are sitting next to
each other on a long flight from LA to NY. The Andersen Consultant
leans over to the Deloitte Consultant and asks if he would like to
play a fun game. The Deloitte Consultant just wants to take a nap,
so he politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few
winks. The Andersen 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 Deloitte Consultant politely declines and tries to get to
sleep. The Andersen 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 Deloitte Consultant's attention, and he sees no end
to his torment unless he plays, so he agrees to the game. The
Andersen Consultant asks the first question. "What's the distance
from the earth to the moon?"
The Deloitte Consultant doesn't say a word, but reaches into his
wallet, pulls out a five dollar bill and hands it to the Andersen
Consultant. Now, it's the Deloitte Consultant's turn. He asks the
Andersen Consultant "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes
down on four?"
The Andersen 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 Andersen Knowledge
Xchange (R), and consults with his peers around the world, all to no
avail. After about an hour, he wakes the Deloitte Consultant and
hands him $50. The Deloitte Consultant politely takes the $50 and
turns away to try to get back to sleep.
The Andersen Consultant, more than a little miffed, shakes the
Deloitte Consultant and asks "Well, so what's the answer?"
Without a word, the Deloitte Consultant reaches into his wallet, hands
the Andersen Consultant $5, and turns away to get back to sleep.
