A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him.
The waitress asks them for their orders.
The man says, ‘A hamburger, fries and a coke,’ and 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 exact
change for 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 exact change.
This becomes routine until the two enter again. ‘The usual?’ asks the
‘No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato and a
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 change out of his pocket and places
it on the table. The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer. ‘Excuse me,
sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change in your

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, ‘What’s with the ostrich?’
The man sighs, pauses and answers, ‘My second wish was for a tall
chick with a big butt and long legs who agrees with everything I say.’

Tim, what happened to the cut and paste there? Is this “unscramble the joke”? LOL!

It’s still a funny one, even if we do have to unjumble it.
