A Canadian and American gamble

A Canadian and an American are on a flight to Australia.

The American believes all Canadian are stupid so he thought of an idea to try and fool the Canadian man into giving him his money, to pass the time.

'Fancy a game of Quiz to pass the time' he asks

The Canadian declines and grumpily says he would prefer to sleep but after some persuasion he agrees to the game.

'OK' the American says, 'The rules are, I ask you a question and if you don't know the answer, you give me $5. Then you ask me a question and if i can't answer il give you $500.

Naturally the Canadian agrees to these terms.

The American looks around for inspiration before asking 'How far is it from the Earth to the Sun?'

After some consideration the Canadian accepts he does not know and hands the American $5 before attempting to go back to sleep.

The American isn't happy and rouses the Canadian:

'Ok, now you have to ask me a question'

The Canadian thinks before asking 'What goes up a hill with 3 legs, but comes down with 4?' before going back to sleep

The American is baffled, he looks it up on the internet and calls his friends for help, before waking the Canadian and sourly admitting he does not know and hands the Canadian $500 as agreed.

The Canadian takes it before going back to sleep.

The American, very frustrated now says: 'Well?! What goes up a hill with 3 legs but comes down with 4?'

"Wow, that's a tough one. I have no frigging idea." the Canadian says before handing the American $5.
