A couple went to breakfast at a restaurant where the “Senior’s Special” was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99.

“Sounds good,” the wife said. “But I don’t want any eggs.”

“Then I’ll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents because you’re ordering a la carte,” the waitress warned her.

“You mean I’d have to pay for not taking the eggs?” she asked.


“I’ll take the special.”

“How do you want your eggs?”

“Raw and in the shell,” she replied. She took the two eggs home.
