A post caught attention of social media users who were stunned to know about the miscellaneous fee.

At this Colorado restaurant posing a 'duh' question is chargeable, and customers are happily paying! A local favourite for about 20 years, Tom's Diner in Denver, has a side dish on their menu named '1 Stupid Question'.

A Reddit user posted the hilarious photo which shows '1 Stupid Question' is listed on the diner's side menu. The Reddit user also posted the restaurant's receipt showing a separate charge of 38 cents for "1 Stupid Question", alongside an order of chicken tenders and mashed potatoes.

The post caught attention of social media users who were stunned to know that the miscellaneous fee was being charged from customers for years. The restaurant general manager, Hunter Landry, was quoted as saying inToday: "It's meant to be playful. It's good to keep things light in today's world."

The restaurant has been adding the funny side option to the Denver diner's menu around 20 years ago to infuse a bit of fun into the work day. While, the staff are actually instructed never to charge people who actually ask an arguably stupid question!

Surprisingly, customers at the restaurant like the bizarre option on the menu. "The majority of people really get where we're coming from and understand it's meant to be playful. Over the years, maybe a few people have been perturbed but the response is generally positive," Landry said.

The restaurant also has a "healthy options" on their menu with one dish named "Walk Home" for which the cost is mentioned as 'priceless'.

According toIndia Times, the post on Reddit has got several people sharing their own experiences of being asked stupid questions.
