Daily Joke: Man Walks into Restaurant with an Emu by His Side
One day, a man walked into a restaurant with his emu. When the waitress asked about his feathery friend one day, the man's response left her speechless!
One fine afternoon, a man went to grab a bite to eat at a restaurant with an emu. A waitress approached him to take his order.
"What would you like to have, sir?" she asked.
“A burger, chips and a coke, please,” replied the man and turned towards the emu. "I’ll have the same,” the emu said.

The waiter came back with the order right away. "That will be $18.40 please," she said with a smile.
Returning the waitresses' smile, the man reached into his pocket and handed out the exact amount on the bill for the payment.
The following day, the man and his emu went back to the same restaurant for lunch. Again, the man ordered a burger, chips, and coke and the emu asked for the same.

Yet again, the man pulled out exact change from his pocket and paid for the food.
This continued for a few days with the man coming in to the restaurant and ordering the same thing and the emu would ask for the same. What was more surprising was the fact that he had the exact change to pay for the food every time.
The waitress was curious to know how the man always had the exact amount of money to pay for the food, but she assumed he must know what to eat beforehand so he prepared his changes beforehand.
As usual, the man went to the same restaurant with his emu but this time, it was a Friday night. The waiter approached him and asked if he would like to order the usual menu. However, the man had something else in mind.

"It's Friday night. I will have a steak, baked potato, and salad on the side,” said the man. As usual, the emu asked for the same and the man paid the bill with exact change.
This time, the waitress could not help but ask him how he pulled out the exact amount of money every time he ordered something.
“Well, several years ago I was cleaning my house 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 put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would always be there," the man explained.
Clearly awed, the waitress said that the man was lucky to have found the lamp. “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!” she said excitedly.
But she was still curious about the feathery friend of his and asked him about it.

“My second wish was for a tall chick with long legs who agrees with everything I say," the man replied.
