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," she says and the man reaches
into his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment.
The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and 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
later in the week.
"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 the 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
"That's brilliant!" 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 a big ass and long legs who agrees
with everything I say."
