Humor at the Table: Chicken Surprise

Chicken Surprise

  • A couple went out for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and ordered the 'Chicken Surprise'. The waiter brought the meal and served it in a cast iron pot with a lid.
  • Just as the wife was about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rose slightly and she briefly saw two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slammed down.
  • "Good grief, did you see that?'" she asked her husband. He didn't, so she told him to look in the pot. He reached for the lid but just then, the lid opened slightly and he saw two little eyes looking around before slamming shut again.
  • Rather perturbed, he called the waiter over, explained what happened, and demanded an explanation. "Excuse me, sir," said the waiter, "What did you order?"

The husband replied, "Chicken Surprise."

"Ah! So sorry," apologized the waiter, "I brought you Peeking Duck!"
