Let me describe the scene for you here. It’s a normal café. You know something akin to the Café Coffee Day s in
Waitress: Welcome to Café coffee Catch-up. What is your choice for today? Classic, Mocha or Latte?
Guy: Classic, please.
Waitress: Regular, decaf or filtered?
Waitress: With milk or without milk?
Guy: With milk, please.
Guy: Huh? Oh, skimmed.
Waitress: Paper, Recyclable or foam?
Waitress: The coffee cup! You have to choose the type of coffee cup.
Guy: Oh okay, recyclable then.
Waitress: With cream on top or froth on top?
Guy: Uh… cream on top.
Guy (now a bit flustered): I don’t want any.
Waitress: You’ve got to…
Guy (irritably): Oh, yes then. Look, I’m in a real hurry so just get me my order real quick, okay?
Waitress: Mild, medium or frightful?
Guy: Mild, medium or frightful what?
Waitress: Your type of hurry… is it mild, medium of frightful?
Guy (now angry): WHAT HAS THAT GOT TO DO WITH ANY OF THIS?
Waitress: I’ll put it down as “frightful”.
Guy: LOOK!!! (Takes a deep breath and relaxes himself) Look, I just want a regular coffee with milk with no bloody sprinkles on top or I’ll smack you one.
Waitress: Ooooh… Fist, open palm or Knuckle duster?
(There is a sound which the comics describe as “WHAM”)
Waitress (with a stuff upper lip): Thank you for your order… And oh, I forgot, there’s a special promotion so if you answer this riddle, you’ll have what you ordered for free… “What is black and blue and red all over?”
Guy (with extreme deliberate patience): That would be you if you don’t get my order… PRONTO!
Waitress: …. Right…. Away…. Sir!
