The Emu

A Aussie walks into a restaurant with a full-grown Emu behind him.  The waitress asks them for their orders.

The man  says, 'A hamburger, fries and a coke,' and turns to

the Emu,  'What's yours?'

'I'll have  the same,' says the Emu.

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 Emu come again and the man

says, 'A  hamburger, fries and a coke.'

Emu  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  waitress.

'No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato and

a salad,'  says the man.
'Same,' says  the Emu.

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  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 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 ask 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, 'What's with the damned Emu?'

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.'
