An elderly couple called the Smith’s go to have dinner at another elderly couples house, called the Jones’s.
They enjoy a meal together, then, after dinner the wives leave the table to head into the sitting room.
The two men continue talking at the dining table after they finish their meals.
Mr Smith says to his friend Mr Jones, ‘Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really good. The food was amazing and the service was even better. I would highly recommend it.’
Mr Jones replies by saying, ‘Well that sound terrific. What was the name of the restaurant that you went to?’
Mr Smith sits there for a while. He thinks and thinks. Finally he asks Mr Jones, ‘What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know… The one that’s red with thorns?’
Mr Jones thinks for a minute. He replies to his friend, ‘Do you mean a rose?’
‘Yes, that’s the one, thank you!’ Mr Smith replies.
He then turns towards the sitting room and yells out, ‘Rose! What’s the name of that amazing restaurant we went to last night?
