Battle of wits between a genius and an idiot – but which is which!

A genius finds himself locked in an expensive battle of wits with an idiot on a train...

Two men get chatting on a train journey about their jobs and their lives. One jokes that he’s a bit of an idiot who’s never got very far in life but he doesn’t mind because he’s basically happy.

The other is a little more serious, and points out that he’s a university professor with a genius level IQ.

The genius sees that the idiot is poorly dressed and doesn’t seem to be having much luck so he decides to give him a chance to win some money while passing the time on the train journey.

“Let’s have a quiz. If you can’t answer a question I ask then you have to give me €5. If I can’t answer one your questions, I’ll give you €5,000.”

“Fair enough,” said the idiot.

“Ok, which is the largest animal that has ever lived?”

The idiot hasn’t a clue so hands over the €5. Then he asks his question. “Which animal has two legs in the morning, three legs in the afternoon and four legs at night?”

The genius scratches his head but has no idea. He consults his books, checks google on his phone but nothing. Eventually he admits defeat and hands over €5,000.

“Well done, you got me there with a brilliant question. So tell me: which animal does have two legs in the morning, three legs in the afternoon and four legs at night?

The idiot looks puzzled, shrugs his shoulders, then puts his hand in his pocket and gives the genius €5.
