Things that make you stop and laugh

I was at Jack’s Place last night when I overheard this dialogue at the next table where a man and his date were dining:

Waitress: Your order, please?

Man: Yes. Can you give me two spring chickens… but, er…*slight pause*… change one of them to baked potato.

The Goonfather and I couldn’t stop laughing. (Very quietly.)

We were still laughing about it 4 hours later, after dinner, after catching a play, on our way home.

    I think it’s extremely sad that I had to pause and rethink on the sentence before getting the joke. Such is our existence and butchery of the language.
