The Ostrich June 28, 2014

Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Humor, Joke.

A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him. The waitress asks them 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” 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.  “The usual?” asks the waitress.

“No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato, and a salad,” says the man.

“Same,” says the ostrich.

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 cannot hold back her curiosity any longer.

“Excuse me, Sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change in 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.”

“Brilliant!” says the waitress. “Most people would ask 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, “What’s with the ostrich?”

The man sighs and says, “My second wish was for a tall chick with a big butt and long legs who agrees with everything I say.”

Aah . . . that’s better!

Hoping the same for you and BFF! I think Missouri is trying to steal all the humidity from Florida this week! We are heading to the Kinda Big City but we are going to stay out of the heat and humidity.

nrhatch - June 28, 2014

Have fun. Do stay out of the heat and humidity ~ I just got back from a walk. It’s wicked out there. I’m planning to stay in the A/C until after dark. 😎

As they say….beware of what you wish for….

nrhatch - June 28, 2014

Some wishes take wicked turns ~> at least this guy just ended up with a fine feathered friend.

katecrimmins - June 28, 2014

and enough money to do whatever he wanted.

nrhatch - June 28, 2014

Yes. HIs first wish was a winner!

That genie had quite a sense of humor.

6. Grannymar - June 28, 2014

LOL! Love it! This is a classic, Nancy 😀

nrhatch - June 28, 2014

Yay! Here’s to finding things to laugh about.

8. Jill Weatherholt - June 28, 2014

Where do you find these, Nancy? This was hilarious and a man’s dream come true!

nrhatch - June 28, 2014

Joe (a neighbor) and Kathy (in South Africa) send me these funny e-mails . . . enough to fill my Silly Saturday posts. 😎

9. ericjbaker - June 28, 2014

I’ll let this be a cautionary tale in case I ever find a magic lamp.

nrhatch - June 29, 2014

Yes . . . money first. After that’s squared away, you can be frivolous with wish #2 and still live happily ever after.

That made me smile for quite a while 🙂

nrhatch - June 29, 2014

Yay! Me too. I get a kick out of these Saturday morning “cartoons.” 😎

11. jannatwrites - July 1, 2014

Haha, great laugh! We must be careful when making wishes 🙂

nrhatch - July 1, 2014

If ever I meet a genie wafting wishes, I won’t waste a wish on a chick with a big butt.

12. Three Well Beings - July 1, 2014

Ha! Be careful what you ask for, right? 🙂

nrhatch - July 1, 2014

I have seen people’s wishes come true in twisted ways. I think the Universe has a twisted sense of humor. 😎
