So you can count, then

please-be-safe-sign
Waiter, there’s a fly in my eye.
Sorry,sir.I  thought it was dead.It must have flown out of the soup.
What was it doing in the soup?
Looked like the butterfly to me.
I’ll have  stroke if I stay here.
I promise not to touch you ,sir.
I might go mad
Don’t worry.We’re all mad here.
How do you know?
I have a Ph.D and I work as a waiter.
But was it in psychology?
No,it was field theory.
Who needs a theory about fields?
That’s just what I thought.
Yet you managed to write a thesis?
Yes,it’s not hard to write with a pen and paper.
Maybe you don’t understand me.
Let’s visit a field and find out
Find what the fly is doing?
It’s gone
What a shame.I planned to take it home with me.How about you?
I never take flies home with me.
Does your wife object?
She doesn’t like them either.
That makes two of you.
So you can count, then
Thank you so much,uno,duo,tres,quattore,qinque,sex
Are you sure it’s sex?
I know it’s septem after
A  long time after for some
Are you one?
No,I am 35.
Thank God.I don’t want children here.
People go to  the hospital for that
Are they free?
No,it’s all private now except for the sex.
What do you mean?
They watch you make love in case you do it wrong.
What is wrong?
You sound like Pontius Pilate
That’s an unusual name.Is he in a Soap?
The greatest of them all.
Sez who?
I’m tired of talking
Well, what else can we do?
