    A young man saw an elderly couple sitting down to lunch at Burger
    King. He noticed that they ordered one meal, and an extra drink
    cup. As he watched, the gentleman carefully divided the hamburger
    in half, then counted out the fries. One for him, one for her,
    until each had half of them. Then he poured half of the soft
    drink into the extra cup, and set it in front of his wife. The
    old man began to eat, and his wife sat watching, with her hands
    folded in her lap.

    The young man decided to ask if they would allow him to purchase
    another meal for them so that they didn't have to split theirs.

    The old gentleman said, "Oh, no. We've been married 50 years, and
    everything has always been and will always be shared, 50/50."

    The young man than asked the wife if she was going to eat, and
    she replied, "Not yet. It's his turn using the teeth."
