What would you wish for if you only had two wishes? The fellow in the following joke got one of his wishes brilliantly right and the other...you decide.



man walks into a restaurant

with a full-grown ostrich behind him, and as he sits down, a 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 will you have?"

"I'll have the same," says the ostrich.

A short time later, the waitress returns with their order. "That will be $6.40 please," and 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, "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 a 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 $12.62." 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 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 money is always there," says the man.

The waitress asks, "One other thing, sir, what's with the ostrich?"

The man sighs, pauses, and answers...

"My second wish was for a tall chick with long eyelashes and legs who agrees with everything I say."

I mean, the genie wasn't wrong! Did you find this joke funny? Remember to share it with your friends and find out what their wishes would have been.

In a heartwarming story, a hungry homeless man approached a local Burger King in San Antonio, Texas to ask what he could get for 50 cents.

Instead of turning him away, teenager Matthew Resendez treated the man with kindness and asked him what he would like to have off the menu, knowing that the menu had no 50 cent items.


The teenager rang up a full meal for the man, paying for it with his own debit card, and took nothing from the other man except his thanks.

A woman who witnessed the entire exchange between him and the homeless man then tipped Resendez $100 and wrote to Burger King about him.

Resendez's proud mum shared the good deed on Facebook, urging others to pay it forward.
