A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him. *
The waitress asks for their orders.
The man says,“A hamburger, fries and a coke,” and turns to the ostrich, “What’s yours?” *
”I’ll have the same,” says the ostrich. *
A short time later the waitress returns with the order. *
”That will be $9.40 please,”and the man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment. *
The next day, the man and the ostrich come againand the man says, “A hamburger, fries, and a coke.”
The ostrich says, “I’ll have the same.”
Again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with
exact change. *
This becomes routine until, the two enter again.
”The usual?”asks the waitress. *
”No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato, and salad,” says the man. *
”Same,” says the ostrich. *
Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, “That will be $32.62.” *
Once again he man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places it on the table. *
The waitress can’t hold back her curiosity any longer.
“Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change out of your pocket every time?” *
”Well,” says the man,”several years ago I was cleaning the attic and found an old lamp.
When I rubbed it a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes.
My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and
the right amount of money would always be there.” *
*”That’s fantastic!” says the waitress.
“Most people would wish for a million dollars or something, but you’ll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!” *
”That’s right. Whether it’s a gallon of milk or a
Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there,” says the man. *
The waitress asks, “But, sir, what’s with the ostrich?” *
The man sighs, pauses, and answers,
“My second wish was for a tall chick with long legs
who agrees with everything I say.”
