A couple completed their dinner and the man asked for the check. Thinking to impress his date, he called the waiter over and loudly complained that the bill was incorrect. The waiter patiently reviewed the bill with the man, and it was correct.

"Are you trying to make a fool out of me?" the man fumed.

"No, Sir! Not in the least, Sir. I never interfere with nature!"

Maurice started his very own business, which almost immediately began to prosper. He was soon a very rich man.

One day, his bank manager rang him and said, "I have a query on one of your recent cheques. For years, you've been signing all cheques with two Xs, but this one is signed with three Xs. Could you confirm it is one of yours?"

Maurice replied, "Yes, it is. Since I've become so wealthy, my wife thought I ought to have a middle name."

The woman says, "Ten pounds."

The buyer goes on, "While I'm at it, could I give you another pound for the saucer? The cat seems to enjoy drinking from it."

The shopkeeper shakes her head, "Sorry, but I've sold nineteen cats from that one saucer!"
