Pancake Restaurant

Two programmers sit at a table in a busy pancake restaurant in a suburban area of a pseudo-metropolitan, tourist-driven city. Generally speaking, the city has wonderful food but the suburb has nothing. So this is why the programmers are at a pancake restaurant.



The waitress returns to the table.





Waitress: What would you like?



You: I’ll have the short-stack, and on the side I’d like two eggs scrambled.



Waitress: We have a special, a short-stack with two eggs, sausage, and bacon.



You: Oh, that’s OK, I don’t eat any meat, so I’ll just have the eggs on the side.



Waitress: The special is a better deal though.



You: Yes, you’re right, but since I don’t eat meat, the eggs will be fine.



Waitress: Well, we also have ham!
