Robin’s 2¢:

Two seniors went to breakfast at a restaurant, where the “senoirs’ special” was two eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, and toast for $1.99.

“Sounds good,” one said. “But I don’t want the eggs.”

“Then I’ll have to charge you $2.49 because you’re ordering a la carte,” the waitress warned.

“You mean, I’d have to pay for not taking the eggs?” the woman asked incredulously.

“Yes,” stated the waitress.

“I’ll take the special, then,” the woman said.

“How do you want your eggs?” asked the waitress.

“Raw and in the shell,” answered the woman, who took the two eggs home and baked a cake.
