Trouble Ordering

I've always ordered my soft drinks in a simple way, e.g. 'A Coke, please.' Lately, though, this hasn't seemed to work. Waitresses now often respond, 'I'm sorry, we don't have Coke. We have Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, 7-Up, Hartridges, Virgin Cola, Sprite and Red Bull.' Exhausted by listening to the long list of soft drinks, I thought I'd make life easier. So one day I simply asked the snack bar staff at a cinema for a 'dark, cold, carbonated beverage.' The young man behind the counter smiled and asked, 'Yes sir, and would you like a long, thin, cylindrical plastic sucking device with that?'

Ice Cream Not Smooth EnoughIce cream thrown away

Manuel Oliveira owned an ice cream shop in Mérida, Venezuela; and he reported that he sold 567 flavours, including onion, chilli, beer, eggplant [aubergine], smoked trout, spaghetti and parmesan, chicken with rice, and spinach. He said some flavours fail; he once abandoned avocado ice cream, and tossed out 99 pounds of it, because it wasn't smooth enough.

And How Do You Like Your Chicken?

Victor saw a sign in the window of Barney's Restaurant, Droitwich Spa, UK, that read 'Unusual Breakfast'. Always an adventurous eater, Victor went in and sat down. The waitress brought him his pot of tea and asked him what he wanted to eat. 'What's does your unusual breakfast include?' he asked politely. 'Baked tongue of chicken!' she replied with a grin. 'Baked tongue of chicken?... baked tongue of chicken! Do you have any idea how disgusting that is? I would never even consider eating anything that came out of a chicken's mouth!' Victor cried. Undaunted, the waitress asked, 'What would you like then?' 'Oh, just bring me some scrambled eggs,' Victor replied.

  2. In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant;
  3. In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant;
  4. In China they didn't know what "opinion" meant;
  5. In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant;
  6. In South America they didn't know what "please" meant;
  7. In the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant;
  8. In the UK they hung up as soon as they heard the Indian accent.

A Tasty Snack?

UK border officials detained a 22 year old man from Burkina Faso for trying to smuggle 94 kilos (over 200 pounds) of dried caterpillars through customs. His excuse? He thought it would be OK as they were food for 'personal consumption'. Unlike the 47 year old from Togo who, when it was discovered that he had 33 pounds of live, fuzzy caterpillars in his suitcase, tried to eat as many as possible to show that they were harmless. He added that they were a snack that he was addicted to. In some countries caterpillars are considered a delicacy......I'll stick to chocolate!
