An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives

left the table and went into the kitchen. The two gentlemen were

talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant

and it was really great. . . I would recommend it very highly.

' The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?'

The first man thought and thought and finally said, 'What is the name of

that flower you give to someone you love? You know... The one

that's red and has thorns.' 'Do you mean a rose?' 'Yes, that's the one,'

replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled,

'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night ?'
