A couple decided to go for a meal at a Chinese restaurant. They studied the menu and ordered the “Chicken Surprise” which sounded like a rather interesting dish.
About twenty minutes later, the waiter brought out their meal, which has been served in a cast iron pot with a lid.
Just as the wife reached for the pot to serve herself, the lid of the pot rose slightly and she briefly saw two beady little eyes looking around, before the lid slammed back down again.
“Good grief, did you see that?” she said to her husband.
He hadn’t, so she asked him to look in the pot.
He reached for the pot and again the lid rose and he saw two little eyes looking around before once again the lid slammed down.
By now they were rather perturbed and so they called the waiter over to their table.
The couple explained what had been happening and asked for an explanation.
“Please sir”, the waiter said very humbly, “what you order?”
The husband replied, “It was the Chicken Surprise”.
“Ah! So sorry”, the waiter said, “I bring you Peeking Duck by mistake”.
