A man walks up to the bar with an ostrich behind him. As he sits, the bartender comes over, and asks for his order. The man says, "I'll have a beer," and turns to the ostrich. "What's yours?"
"I'll have a beer, too," says the ostrich.
The bartender pours the beer and says, "That will be $3.40 please."
The man reaches in his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment.
The next day the man and ostrich come again and the man says, "I'll have
a beer," and the ostrich says, "I'll have the same."
Once again the man reaches in his pocket and pays with exact change.
This becomes a routine until late one evening the two enter again. "The usual?" asks the bartender.
"Well, it's close to the last call so I'll have a large Scotch," says the man.
"Same for me" says the ostrich.
"That will be $7.20," says the bartender. Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places it on the bar.
The bartender can't hold back his curiosity any longer. "Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change out of your pocket every time you order something?"
"Well," says the man, "several years ago I was cleaning the attic and found an old lamp. When I rubbed it a genie appeared and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that every time I had to pay for anything I would just put my hand in my pocket, and the right amount of money would always be there."
"That's brilliant!" says the bartender. "Most people would wish for a million dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!"
"That's right! Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce the exact money is always there," says the man.
The bartender asks, "One other thing, sir. What's with the ostrich?"
The man replies, "My second wish was for a chick with long legs."
