Chicken surprise

A couple go to a Chinese restaurant for dinner. Feeling adventurous, they order the "Chicken Surprise". The waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast-iron pot. Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly and she spots two beady little eyes looking around. Before she can scream, the lid slams back down. "Did you see that?" she asks her husband in a shaky voice.

"See what?" he asks.

So she asks him to look in the pot. He reaches for it and again the lid rises, and this time he sees the two little eyes looking around before it slams back down. Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, tells what is happening, and demands an explanation. The waiter asks what they had ordered. The husband says, "Chicken Surprise."

"Ah, so sorry," says the waiter. "I bring you Peeking Duck."
