Robin’s 2 cents

A man observed a sign in the restaurant window that read “Unique Breakfast” so he walked in and sat down. The waitress brought him his coffee and asked him what he wanted.

“What’s your Unique Breakfast?” he asked inquisitively.

“Baked tongue of chicken!” she proudly replied.

“Baked tongue of chicken?…Do you have any idea how disgusting that is? I would never even consider eating anything that came out of a chicken’s mouth!” he fumed.

Undaunted, the waitress asked, “What would you like then?”

“Just bring me some scrambled eggs,” the man replied.
