An elderly couple was having dinner at another couple's house and after their meal the wives left the table to go to the kitchen.
The two elderly gents were talking, and one said: "Last night we went out to a fabulous new restaurant I'd highly recommend."
The other man asked: "What's the name of the restaurant?"
The first man thought long and hard with a furrowed brow, finally saying: "Ah, what is the name of that red flower you give to someone you love?"
His friend replied: "A carnation?"
"No, no. The other one," the man said.
His friend suggested, "The poppy?"
"No, no, no," growled the man. "You know - the one that is red and has thorns."
His friend said, "Do you mean a rose?"
"Yes! Thank you!" the first man said.
He then turned toward the kitchen and yelled: "Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?"
