Are Jews smarter ?

Dear Zaide….Are Jews smarter than non-Jews? Toby Dear Moby…It matters who’s asking. Read below. Bored during a long flight, Professor Charles Hall, an eminent physicist leaned over and woke up Chaim Yankel who was sitting next to him, sleeping. “Would you like to play a game?” asked the Professor. “I’ll ask you a question,” the Professor explained, “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 $50.” “OK,” said Chaim Yankel calmly. “What’s the distance from the earth to the moon?” Confused, Chaim Yankel handed him $5. “Ha!” said the Professor. “It’s 238,857 miles. Now it’s your turn.” Chaim Yankel was silent for a few moments. Then he asked, “What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?” Puzzled, the Professor racked his brains for an hour–but to no avail. Finally, he took out his wallet and handed over $50. “Okay, okay, what is the answer?” the Professor asked. Chaim Yankel said, “I don’t know,” pulled out a $5 bill, handed it to the Professor, and went back to sleep.
