A man walks into a restaurant with an ostrich behind him, and as he sits down, the waitress comes over, and asks for their order.

The man says, "I'll have 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 $6.40 please," she says, and the man reaches into his pocket and pulls out exact change for payment.

The next day, the man and the ostrich come again, and the man says, "I'll have a hamburger, fries, and a coke," and the ostrich says, "I'll have the same."

Once again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change. This becomes a routine until, late one evening, 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 for me," says the ostrich.

A short time later the waitress comes with the order and says, "That will be $32.62."

Once again the man pulls 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 I 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 could just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would always be there."

"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 amount is always there," says the man.

The waitress asks, "One other thing, sir. What's with the ostrich?" < BR The man replies, "My second wish was for a chick with long legs."
