A horse walked into a soda fountain and ordered an ice cream sundae with chocolate ice cream and strawberry syrup, sprinkled with nuts.
The young man behind the counter brought the sundae to the horse, who finished it off with great pleasure.
Noticing how the young man stared at him as he ate, the horse said, “I suppose you think it’s strange that a horse should come into a soda fountain and order a sundae with chocolate ice cream and strawberry syrup, sprinkled with nuts?”
“Not at all,” the young man replied. “I like it that way myself.”
