    Subject: A Man And An Ostrich

    A man walks up to the bar with an ostrich following close behind him and as
    he sits down, the bartender comes over, and asks for their order. The man
    says, "I'll have a beer, and turns to the ostrich and says, "What's yours?"
    "I'll have a beer too," says the ostrich. The bartender pours the beer and
    says "That will be $3.40 please." The man reaches into his pocket and pulls
    out the exact change for the payment of the two beers.
    The next day, the man and the ostrich come in again, and the man says, "I'll

    every time?" "Well," says the man, "several years ago I was cleaning an old
    attic and found an old oil 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 at all, I could just put my hand in my pocket, and the right amount
    of money would always be there."
    "That's brilliant!" says the bartender. "Most people would wish for a
    million dollars or something like that, but you'll always be as rich as you
    need to be 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 bartender asks "One other thing, sir ... what's with the ostrich?" The
    man replies "My second wish was for a really agreeable chick with long
