The lawyer and the blonde
A lawyer and a blonde girl happen to be sitting next to each other on a
long flight from L.A. to New York. The lawyer leans over to her and asks if she
would like to play a fun game. The blonde is tired and just wants to take
a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few
