jokes: Kikuyu and Whiteman

A Kikuyu and an American man are sitting next to each
other on a long flight from London to New York.
The American man leans over to the Kikuyu and asks if
he would like to play a fun game. The Kikuyu just wants to take a nap,
so he politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few
The American man persists and explains that the game
is real easy and is a lot of 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 Kikuyu politely declines and tries to get
to sleep.

he American man , 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 $100!”

After about an hour, he wakes the Kikuyu and hands him
$100. The Kikuyu politely takes the $100 and turns away to try to get
back to sleep.


The American, more than a little miffed, shakes the
Kikuyu and asks “Well, so what’s the answer?” Without
a word, the Kikuyu reaches into his wallet, hands the American $5,
and turns away to get back to sleep.
