Best Early-Bird Special
The nonsmoking section, 4:30 p.m.: "I want a nice hamburger, that's all."
"Ma, look at the menu."
"You eat. I don't have to eat. It's this medicine."
"Ma, you're gonna be hungry later."
"How much is the hamburger?"
"It's better to get the whole meal. You get more for your money. You get coffee, soup or salad, and dessert. With the chicken parmigiana, that's $8.95."
"I don't want that much."
"Well, you're the one who asked about price."
"Hmph. I guess you know better than me. I'm eating too much. I don't want to get fat."
"One pound. You gained one pound."
"One and one makes two, and then what do you got, hmm? How much is the hamburger?"
