The man goes into the bar and sits down, followed by an ostrich.
The barman comes over.
The man says: I’ll have a beer.
The barman looks at the ostrich who says:
Same for me, please.
That’ll be £5.20, please.
The man puts his hand in his pocket and pulls out the exact amount and gives it to the barman.
The next day, the man and the ostrich come back and exactly the same happens.
Every evening the same routine happens.

- No, thanks. I’ll have a double scotch this time.
- And the same for me, adds the ostrich.
- That’s £5.80 then.
Again, the man puts his hand in his pocket and pulls out the exact amount of money.

- My first was to be able to pay for whatever I wanted to buy simply by putting my hand in my pocket and I would always have the correct amount.
- Absolutely: whether its for a newspaper or a Citroen Berlingo the exact amount is always in my pocket.
- So what’s the story about the ostrich, then?
- That’s where I ballsed up as, for my second wish, I asked for a chick with long legs …
