We all know that stage in the month when you are counting down to pay day. All you want is to have a few drinks and then make a trip to the kebab house followed by another takeaway the next day.

Sadly, though, bank accounts can rarely accommodate that sort of expense when pay day is so close. It doesn't stop us trying every trick in the book, though. You might try to cash in on money you're owed, ask mum or dad for a bit of dosh, or considering selling all of your clothes.

Usually that comes to no avail, but one LAD, Adam Fletcher, went straight to the source - Just Eat - and bargained with the company.

Adam messaged the delivery giant to explain that he hadn't eaten all night and wouldn't be able to until he was paid the following day.

The givers of good understood his peril, given that their payday was the same day, but were obviously wary of handing out food without gaining anything themselves.

Not to put Adam through anymore than he'd already been through, Just Eat simply asked if he's 'got any good jokes?'.

Unaware that the customer clearly either spends his spare time thinking of food-related jokes, or indeed just Googled 'food puns', the take away giant was forced to concede.

He came out of the blocks with 'what did the hamburger say to the other hamburger in the bathroom? I musturd'.

He then followed it up with the classic 'why did the French fry win the race? Because it was fast food'.

Clearly impressed by his efforts, whoever was in control of Just Eat's Facebook profile, known only as 'SM', fired back with their own knock, knock joke.

Hiding behind the door was indeed £15 ($20) that was going straight into Adam's account so that he could order anything up to that value. Not a bad deal, is it?

Now, some people might get a bee in their bonnet about his order, but each to their own.

He went for a double plain burger, plus salad (which doesn't make it a plain burger), and a large Donner kebab with salad, totaling £9.80 ($12.95).

The Just Eat purists out there will presumably point out that when there's £15 dropping in your account then you should use it all, but let's assume he's ordered a desert or a side from somewhere else.

"So me and my mate were trying to order and because it's so late in the month we were trying to use cards that had nothing on, so instead of having rations we went and just reached out to them to see if they might actually do it, and they did," Adam told LADbible. "We only did it as a joke at first to see if they would and the fact they did was just quality.

"I thought they were having me on at first with the jokes and that but obviously not. I had to find the best fast food joke I could and by the looks of things it worked."

Not bad. So, is everyone currently preparing their best food jokes and getting ready to message every delivery service in existence?
