¡°What do you want to do?¡± the businessman asked. ¡°We can ask each other riddles.¡± The farmer said, ¡°You start.¡± ¡°Let¡¯s make the rules first,¡± the businessman said. ¡°That¡¯s not fair. You are a businessman with much knowledge. You know more things than I do. I am just a farmer.¡±

¡°That¡¯s true.¡± The businessman said. ¡°What do you want we should do?¡± ¡°If you don¡¯t know the answer to a riddle, you pay me $100. And if I don¡¯t know the answer, I¡¯ll pay you$50.¡± The farmer said. The businessman thought about this, then he said, ¡°OK. That¡¯s fair. Who will go first?¡±

¡°I will,¡± The farmer said. ¡°Here is my riddle. What has three legs when it walks, but only two legs when it flies?¡± The business man repeated the riddle, ¡°What has three legs when it walks, but only two legs when it flies?
