A clergy couple went for a Chinese meal in a restaurant to celebrate the anniversary of their ordination. (There! this is now officially a religious joke!) They ordered the Chicken Surprise. The waiter brought the meal, served in a cast-iron lidded pot.
Just as the wife was about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rose slightly and she briefly saw two beady 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. He reached for it and again, the lid rose and he saw two little eyes looking around before the lid slammed back down.
Rather perturbed, they called the waiter over and explained what had happened and demanded an explanation.
“Please sir, what did you order?” asked the waiter.
“Sorry,” said the waiter, “I brought you Peeking Duck.”
