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!
