About 20 minutes later, the waiter brings their meal, which has been served in a cast iron pot with a lid.
Just as the wife reaches for the pot 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 says to her husband.
He hadn’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 once again the lid slams down.
By now they are rather perturbed and call the waiter over. They explain what has been happening and ask for an explanation.
“Please sir”, the waiter says very humbly, “what you order?”
The husband replies, “It was the Chicken Surprise”.
“Ah! So sorry”, the waiter says, “I bring you Peeking Duck by mistake”.
