A couple go for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and order the 'Chicken Suprise' 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."
Ah... so sorry," says the waiter, "I bring you Peeking Duck"
Amish elevatorAn Amish boy and his father were in a shopping mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.
The boy asked, "What is this Father?"
The father, never having seen an elevator responded, "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is."
While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady in a wheel chair moved up to the two moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small circular numbers above the walls light up sequentially.
They continued to watch until it reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blonde stepped out.
The father said quietly to his son... "Go get your mother".
Joe went to visit his 90-year-old grandfather somewhere out in the country. After spending a great evening chatting the night away, in the morning Joe's grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast. However, Joe notice a film-like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking, "Are these plates clean?"
His grandfather replied, "They're as clean as cold water can get them. Just you go ahead and finish your meal sonny!"
For lunch the old man made a ham salad. Again, Joe was concerned about the plates as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, "Are you sure these plates are clean?"
Without looking up the old man said, "I told you before sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don't you fret, I don't want to hear another word about it!"
Later that afternoon, Joe was on his way to the village, as he was leaving, his grandfather's dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass. Joe shouted his Grandfather, "your dog won't let me get to my car".
Without diverting his attention from the football match he was watching on TV, the old man shouted ...
"Coldwater get back in your kennel"

A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor's office and says that her body hurts wherever she touches it.
"Impossible!" says the doctor. "Show me."
The redhead takes her finger, pushes on her left breast and screams, then she pushes her elbow and screams in even more agony. She pushes her knee and screams; likewise she pushes her ankle and screams. Everywhere she touches makes her scream.
The doctor says, "You're not really a redhead, are you?
"Well, no" she says, "I'm actually a blond."
"I thought so," the doctor says. "Your finger's broken."
During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.
Well, said the Director, we fill up a bath, then we offer a tea spoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bath.
Oh, I understand, said the visitor. A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup.
No, said the Director, A normal person would pull the plug.
