9. The Hamster Show
A down and out, a grungy man walks into a swanky restaurant desperately needing a meal. He asks the waiter if he can have a free meal and the waiter says, “Absolutely not! This is an upscale establishment and I’m going to have to ask you to leave.”
The man says, “If I can show you something amazing that you’ve never seen before will you give me a meal?”
The waiter replies, “Ok, only if it is truly amazing and not crude.”
The man pulls a hamster out of his pocket. It jumps off the table, runs across the room to the piano, and plays songs. And, it is really good!
The waiter is amazed and brings a hot meal to the man while the hamster plays.
When the man finishes, he is still hungry and asks the waiter for a free dessert and coffee. The waiter says, “No, sorry, unless you have the money or another miracle, that’s all you get.”
The man says, “Ok!” and pulls a frog out of his pocket and sets it on the table. The frog begins singing the song that the hamster is playing on the piano!
A man at another table rushes over and offers $200 for the singing frog.
The man makes the trade and the fellow runs out of the restaurant with the frog to get him on The Tonight Show.
The waiter says, “Are you crazy? That singing frog is worth millions, not just $200.”
The man replies, “Not so. The hamster is also a ventriloquist. Now, bring that chocolate torte and coffee, please.”
