Chicken little

Customer: Have you got any chicken?

Waiter: We’ve got a whole chicken.

Customer: How much for a plate of it?

Waiter: We don’t sell it by the plate. We sell it by the chicken.

Customer: How much for a chicken then?

Waiter: You can have it free of charge.

Customer: Really?

Waiter: You’ll have to share it with all the other customers though.
