The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

Chicken Suprise

A couple decided to go for a meal on their anniversary and after some deliberation chose their local Chinese restaurant. After looking over the menu they finally agreed to share the chef's special, "Chicken Surprise." The waiter brought over the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot.

Just as the wife was about to start in on the meal, the lid of the pot raised a tiny amount and she briefly saw two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slammed back down.
"Good grief, did you see that?" she asked her husband.

He hadn't, so she asked him to look in the pot. As he began to reach for it, again the lid rose and he saw those two beady little eyes looking around again before it firmly slammed back down.

Rather perturbed he called the waiter and described what was happening and demanded an explanation. "Well, sir," asked the waiter, "what did you order?"
"We both chose the same," he replied, "the Chicken Surprise."

"Oh I do apologize, this is my fault," the waiter confessed, "I've brought you the Peking Duck."
