An elderly couple has dinner at another couple's house and after eating, the wives leave the table and go into the kitchen. The two elderly gentlemen are talking and one says, "Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly."
The other man says, "What's the name of the restaurant?" The first man knits his brow in obvious concentration and finally says to his companion, "Aahh, what is the name of that red flower you give to someone you love?" His friends replies, "A carnation?"
"No. No. The other one," the man says. His friend offers another suggestion, "The poppy?"
"Nahhhh," growls the man. "You know the one that is red and has thorns?" His friend says, "Do you mean a rose?"
"Yes, yes that's it. Thank you !" ..the first man says. He then turns toward the kitchen and yells, "Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?"
