    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
    coke," and she 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
    change in 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 the exact amount.
    This becomes routine until the two enter some days later and the
    waitress says
    "The usual?"

    "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 amount from his pocket and places it
    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
    my hand in my pocket and the right amount 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
    as long as you live!"

    "That's right. Whether it's a bottle 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."
