And here's a groaner from John

Chicken Surprise


A couple go for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and order the 'Chicken Surprise'. The waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot.

Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slams back down.

'Good grief, did you see that?' she asks her husband. He hasn't, so she asks him to look in the pot. He reaches for it and again the lid rises, and he sees two little eyes looking around before it slams down..

Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, explains what is happening, and demands an explanation.

'Please sir,' says the waiter, 'what you order?'

The husband replies, 'Chicken Surprise.'

(Now for the groan)


'Ah! So sorry,' says the waiter, 'I bring you Peeking Duck!'

Have a Happy Day and keep smiling. Oh I forgot to mention yesterday, that I was publishing my 900th post since starting this blog.

The only reason I knew that Panama hats were made in Ecuador was because I saw it on a television show just recently!!! (I knew tv watching would be good for something)

Oh - and I have the Purple Finch come to my feeders from time to time so knew that answer too!
