Food and restaurant jokes.

As a chef, I'm always asked if I can cook vegetarian. I always reply that unfortunately I can't...because they are too stringy and you can't slice them thin enough!

What are your favorite food or industry jokes!

    1. re: KevinB

      Two protons walk into a bar and ask `How much for a beer ? `. The bar tender says $20. One of the protons says `$20 ?. Are you sure they are that expensive ?`.

      Bartender looks at them, and says "For you - positive".

      (Sorry best I could come up with`).

      1. re: Paulustrious

        Two strings walk into a bar. The bartender says they don't serve strings. The strings walk out, and tie themselves together, then unravel their ends. They walk back in and ask for a drink, and the bartenders says "Aren't you the strings that were just in here?" They reply "No, we're afraid not"

        1. re: Niki in Dayton

          And the barman, says "Mmm, that may be OK in theory".

      2. re: KevinB

        Three guys walk into a bar (which is really stupid, because you'd think after the first one did it the other two would just walk around)!

        A jumper cable walks into a bar. The barman says, "I'll serve you, but don't start anything."

        A sandwich walks into a bar. The barman says, "Sorry we don't serve food in here."

      3. Two termites walk into a bar and yell "hey where's the bar tender?"

          HA. i laughed out loud at that.

        2. The very opening of Annie Hall, Alvy Singer, talking to the camera:

          "There's an old joke - um... two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says, 'Boy, the food at this place is really terrible.' The other one says, 'Yeah, I know; and such small portions.' Well, that's essentially how I feel about life - full of loneliness, and misery, and suffering, and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly."


          1. A duck walks into a bar and asks, "do you have any quackers?"
            bartender looks at him and says "no". Duck walks out.
            next day, Duck walks into the same bar and asks the same bartender, "do you have any quackers?"
            bartender looks at him and says, "NO"
            next day, Duck walks in again and asks the bartender "do you have any quackers?"
            bartender throws his bar rag down in disgust and says, "NO! if you come in here one more time and ask if we have quackers, im going to nail your feet to the floor!! now get the hell out of here!"
            next day, duck walks in and the bartender sees him and says "what did I tell you!!". Duck looks at him and asks "do you have any nails?" bartender looks puzzled and says "no!?" duck then asks " do you have any quackers?"

              1. re: nkeane

                Same joke (duck, quackers, above jumpingmonk's) told with monkey asking about cheese was posted on CH a while back - it's also very funny with different "personnel".

                  1. re: nkeane

                    A man walks into a bar with a duck on his head. The bartender says, "What can I do for you/" The duck says, "Get this man out of my ass!"

                      "This Guy", not "A man". "This Guy" is funnier.

After doing this for many months, Paddy comes in and only orders 2 beers. The bartender, assuming the worst has happened offers his condolences on the loss of a brother. Paddy said, "No, my brothers are fine. I just gave up drinking for Lent".

                          2. Man walks into a bar, and orders a martini. Bartender prepares it and puts it on the counter. Man stands back three feet, and stares fixedly at it for two minutes, then suddenly reaches forward, snatches the glass, and drains it all in one fluid motion. He waits two minutes, orders another, and repeats the process. This goes on for two more drinks, and the bartender can't contain himself any longer. "Say," he says, "You have a pretty unique style of drinking your martinis; is there a story behind that?".

                            "Yes" the customer replies "I had a terrible accident once."

                            "Oh? What happened?"

                            "I knocked one over with my elbow".

                              There once was a chef who took pride in obtaining only the freshest, most seasonal ingredients. When the morels were up in the Midwest, off he went to the backwoods of Missouri for the freshest, the tastiest, mushrooms. When wild blueberries were ripe in the state of Maine, he was on the first plane to Portland to obtain the freshest berries. One day he received a call that the scrod were running off the Atlantic Coast. He took the first plane, and at the airport rushed to a waiting cab. "Take me," he shouted to the cab driver, "to get scrod!"
                              "Wow" replied the cab driver, "that's the first time I ever heard that request in the pluperfect subjunctive!"
                              Hey...nobody said it had to be a GOOD joke.
                              And yes, I know that there really isn't any such thing as scrod, just a term for 'small, tasty whitefish."

                              1. re: tonifi

                                Two famous chefs were competeting for a large cash prize on who could make the tasties fish dish. As the competition progressed it became obvious that both were going to tie, in fact that both were making pretty much the exact same dish. at the last momement one of the chefs put a demi-glace on his dish and won the prize. As the award was presented the losing chef was heard to say "Ah, there but for the glaze of cod go I."

                                Speaking of fish have you heard that some ancinet seaside communties used to use fish as a form of money, they were amoung the first people to use credit cods.

                                (this one acually happened to me)
                                Two people were stiing down to a meal of fish which one of them has caugt that morning in the pond in his backyard. said one to the other "This is pretty good fish" sed the second (the one who had caught them) "It's crappie" Said the first "well if you don't like it I'll be glad to finish it!"

                                Whats the difference between Italian blue cheese and saying hellow to Medusa and her sisters on a vactaion in Spain
                                one is gorgonzola and the other is "Hola, gorgons!"

                                One upon a time there lived in france a man an his wife who made thier living by selling onions. The man and his wife were poor for, while those who did buy from them averred they sold the finest onions to be had in all of France, relitively few knew of thier product. To correct this fact the man wife in a spark of cleverness, came up with an intriging idea. She took one of her dresses, and by long work proceeded to embroider varios advertisments on it for her husband's product. By walking around in this dress she quicky drummed up business for her husband and they soon became immensley wealthy and famous. Whne they died their estate passed to thier nearest living relative, a nephew bor and living in the U.S. who used some of the money to fund a sucessful bid for the Presidency. This rags to rinces story of course aroused much news and admiration in The U.S. so much so that even to this day at least once a year all of the major media sourcest take some time to consider the President's Estate of the Onion Ad-dress.

                                  I really didn't want to post to this thread, but that's one of my favorite jokes ever.

                                  1. re: tonifi

                                    that's what you call a groaner. *groan*

                                2. A guy is sitting at the bar drinking, when he hears a tiny voice "hey, nice tie!" He looks around confused, but sees noone. A few minutes later, the same voice "love your suit!" Once again, he glances around puzzled. Again (3 times for any joke, eh?), the little voice says "great haircut!"

                                  He finally gets the bartender's attention and asks what that's all about. The bartender replies "oh, that. that's the peanuts. they're complimentary."

                                  And my fave: A horse walks into the bar. Says the bartender "why the long face?"

                                    Guy walks into a bar with a little version of himself on his shoulder and asks for a beer. The little one jumps onto the bar, knocks over the beer, pisses in the peanuts, and thows the napkins on the floor. The barternder asks, "What's with him?". Guy says, "I'm walking on the beach and find a lamp with a genie inside. The genie said that if I'd rub the lamp and let him out, he'd grant me a wish. So I wished for a 10 inch prick".

                                      Following the genie thread:

                                      Bob and Pete are in a fishing boat that sinks. They manage to make it to a small life raft where they cling to life over several days. As they are floating along Bob notices a small bottle bobbing in the waves. He grabs it, rubs it and out pops a genie who says he will grant them one wish. Quick as a wink Pete blurts out, "I wish the entire ocean were Guinness beer!".

                                      "Pete, you idiot!!", says Bob. "Now we're gonna have to pee in the boat."

                                                      1. Guy walks into a bar one day, sits down at the bar, and places a full size head on the counter next to him.
                                                        The startled bartenders asks him "what is that?" The man replies that it is his son, and his name was just Head. He was born with only a head, nothing else. He said his son just turned 21 and he wanted to buy him his first beer. He explained to the bartender that over the years Head had a rich full life, even a job over the summers at a hot dog stand at the beach. The boss would just place him by the checkout window, and Head would offer customers, "ketchup, mustard, onions" rolling his eyes in the proper direction.
                                                        The bartender listened with amazement as he tapped the young man his first beer. He placed the beer on the counter, with a straw, and Head took his first sip. Suddenly, after swallowing, there was a loud poof, and a single arm popped out from beneath his neck. After the second sip, another poof, and a second arm appeared. Excited, the boy took another sip and instantly he had a chest. After repeated sips, he gained a waist and finally two complete legs.
                                                        Happy as you'd imagine, Head and his father embraced for the first time. Then Head, his dad, and the bartender each lifted a glass in celebration for the miracle that had just occurred. But after this final sip, there was another loud poof, and the boy suddenly disappeared completely. In shock the dad looks over at the bartender, who said to him quietly, "Shoulda quit while he was ahead".

The man asks, in an irritated tone, "What are you staring at?" The bartender replies, " Your head is the size of a grapefruit, I've never seen such a thing. " The man says" Well, I had some bad luck. I was walking on the beach, when I found a large seashell.

                                                            He opens the door, goes through, and pulls the down
                                                            behind him. Then he lets go and steps onto the sidewalk.
                                                            And again, boom, he’s on the ground.
                                                            He says to himself, Oh crap, I’ve really overdone it this time.
                                                            Then he sees a nearby light pole, crawls over to it and pulls himself up again.
                                                            And he lets go and falls flat another time.
                                                            Well, he thinks to himself, it’s only a few blocks,
                                                            and between the parking meters and the lightpoles,
                                                            I should be able to get home soon enough.
                                                            So off he goes, crawling, pulling himself up,
                                                            and falling each time he tries to step away.

                                                            Finally he gets to his home, pulls himself to the
                                                            door and bangs on it. His wife opens door, looks down
                                                            at him and says, "You idiot, you forgot your wheelchair again."

                                                              I was in a painting class working on a still life. The instructor came by and said to me "nice pear." I squeezed my boobies and said "that's what all the boys say!"

                                                              1. Recently widowed Mildred is visiting her friend Agnes at the the shore. As they gaze at the waves, Mildred sheepishly says "Agnes, I miss my husband so much. You've been a widow for some time, now. Tell me, do you ever get 'the urge' and what do you do about it?"

                                                                Agnes replies "Well, yes Mildred, I do get 'the urge' sometimes. But then I just suck on a Lifesaver, and it passes."

                                                                Mildred glances down, disappointed. "That's fine for you, but not everybody can have a house on the beach."

                                                                2 Replies

First she gave out green lifesavers and asked the students, "what flavor are these?" "Lime", the children called out in unison. "Good" said the teacher and then handed out red lifesavers. "Cherry" sang out the children. "Very good, children", said the teacher and she then proceeded to hand out amber colored lifesavers. The students were stumped. The teacher, realizing that these honey lifesavers were more difficult to recognize she said "I'll give you a hint. The name of this flavor is something your mom might call your dad."
                                                                  Suddenly one girl screeched , as she spit out her lifesaver "Oh my G-d, they're assholes!"

The teacher then holds up a picture of a (male) deer. After no one says anything for a few minutes the teacher says "I'll give you a clue it's what your mom sometimes calls your Dad" One kid then pipes up "Oh I know now, it's a horny bastard!"

                                                                                A table of Scandinavian-looking men had been eating dinner behind us when another 'Scandinavian'-looking man walked in and over to their table. The seated group seemed to know him and we heard him say: "Are you finished?" Believe it or not, the reply was: "No, we're Swedish..... but you can sit and join us anyway."

                                                                                  But anyway, I think this is true. Some fellow was so fussy about his eggs that he bought an egg timer, and, when he ordered bioled aggs in a restaurant, insisted that the chef use it.

                                                                                  In one restaurant, he orders two 4-minute eggs, and gives the timer to the waiter. More than four minutes elapses, and no eggs. Finally, he goes into the kitchen, and there are two eggs, boiling away, and the egg timer boiling in the pot along wiht them.

                                                                                2. It has been a while since this thread had anything new so.............................

He eats the sandwich, pulls out a gun and shoots the waiter dead. As the panda stands up to go, the manager shouts, "Hey! Where are you going? You just shot my waiter and you didn't pay for your sandwich!" The panda yells back at the manager, "Hey man, I'm a PANDA! Look it up!" The manager opens his dictionary and sees the following definition for panda: "A tree dwelling marsupial of Asian origin, characterized by distinct black and white coloring. Eats shoots and leaves."

How about reel, or stagger or stumble or wobble or lurch or crawl or possibly blunder, bumble, careen, fall, falter, flounder, hesitate, limp, lose their balance, lumber, lurch, muddle, pitch,shuffle, tilt, topple, totter, trip, wallow, or even waver? ;-D>

                                                                                        "Why, Sister Mary Ignacius! What are you, an upstanding young woman of the Lord, doing in my shop, a den of the demon rum?"
                                                                                        The young nun looks at him sincerely and says, "Seamus, sir, I would like to buy a bottle of bourbon."
                                                                                        Seamus is aghast, "No, Sister! I cannot in good conscience sell you a bottle of bourbon, for it goes against the very fiber of your life's calling!"
                                                                                        "You see, Mr. Flannery, it's for the Mother Superior."
                                                                                        At this, Seamus becomes livid, "Oh, for the Mother Superior, is it? And what use does she have for this stuff which rots society? And you better understand that anything you tell me I will readily recount to the Monsignor!"
                                                                                        Sister Mary Ignacius looks around, lowers her voice and leans in to say, "No, Seamus. It's for her constipation."
                                                                                        Seamus immediately abases himself, "Oh! I am so sorry, Sister, to ever doubt the strength of your faith. Here, take this fifth of bourbon for the Mother Superior with my compliments."
                                                                                        So Sister Mary Ignacius thanks Seamus graciously, tucks the brown paper bag into her habit, and discreetly leaves the store.
                                                                                        Later, at closing time, Seamus gets his hat and coat, flips the sign to "CLOSED" and locks up. On his way home he passes the convent, where there is quite a crowd gathered at the gate. Naturally curious, he makes his way to the front of the crowd to see what's the spectacle and his eyes land on Sister Mary Ignacius, naked but for her veil, dancing about the courtyard singing off-color limericks and drinking songs.
                                                                                        "SISTER!" Seamus yells, "What are you doing?! You told me the bourbon was for the Mother Superior's constipation!"

                                                                                            A elderly Jewish man has been eating dinner in the same restaurant every Friday night for the last 11 years. He always orders matzah ball soup and roast chicken. One one night he calls for the waiter, who is his regular server and they know each other by last name.
                                                                                            Cohen, I want you to taste the soup.

                                                                                              So she shouts 'make the chicken pea'

However recently there have been some complaints from the local Ethiopian resturaunt, it seems they were using it in their injera (flatbread) but evertime the served this bread to thier patrons they becme very angry, left in a huff, and never returned. They've stopped using it but they can't seem to get any of thier patrons back and it's been real trouble for them. Of course I could have told them not to do it in the first place, eveyone knows people get sore when you add N-salt to injera.

His son comes to him and asks, Pop is there anything I can do for you to make you more comfortable? He says that I can smell that your mother is baking her famous apple strudel. I would like to taste it once more before I die. The son leaves and returns 5 minutes later. The father asks, Where is the strudel? The son says...

She smiles slyly and replies, "Why, yes, I am." The biker says, "Well go wash your hands then, because I want a Cheeseburger."

He watches other people's food come out on the classic heavy white diner china. Imagine his surprise when his order arrives: it's plunked on his table in a shiny hubcap!

                                                                                                                        He asks his waiter "What gives?"

                                                                                                                          The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, "Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great.. I would recommend it very highly."
                                                                                                                          The other man said, "What is the name of the restaurant?"
                                                                                                                          The first man thought and thought and finally said, "What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love?
                                                                                                                          You know.... The one that's red and has thorns."

It's not about food but it IS really true....Tourist is leaving restaurant where I worked and asked directions. I started to give him detailed directions when he cut me off and said "but wait, I'M BACKED IN!" You can't make this stuff up! :-)

There was a contest to see who could com up with the best visual pun. whne my turn came up I went over to the beer collection (the person at who house the part was being held collected sealed antique beer cans and bottles) from which I took two bottles of Dunkel and two cans of Billy Beer I then went over to the wet bar and mixed up a zombie cocktail. While there I als pored a glass of Iced tea from the pitcher there (for those who werent drinking) finally it took a plate and on it put some slices of proscuitto from the canape table. I then laid these out in a row making sure that the two bottles of Dunkel were touching each other as were the two beer cans. I then pronounced my pun done. when asked what it was I sand out "Bock to Bock, Billy to Billy with a Zombie, ham and tea!"

                                                                                                                                  1. re: jumpingmonk

The vendor starts serving another customer. Zen master says "Hey, what about change?" Vendor says "Change comes from within."

                                                                                                                                  Waitress walks by a table with a hamburger under each armpit. Grossed out customer asks-
                                                                                                                                  "What are you doing?"
                                                                                                                                  "Keeping the hamburgers warm!"
                                                                                                                                  "If you think that's bad, you should see what I do with the hotdogs!"

                                                                                                                                    Barman says, "Sure, you look awful familiar."

                                                                                                                                    Barman says, "No, I'm sure I know you."

                                                                                                                                    Guy says, "Well, I'm from out of town, and this is my first visit to your fine city."

                                                                                                                                    Barman says, "Honest, I swear, I seen you somewhere."

                                                                                                                                    Guy says, "Well, maybe you could have seen me in another bar in another town, but I just started drinking for the first time in my life this week, so it's unlikely."

                                                                                                                                    Barman says, "You on the TV or somethin'?"

                                                                                                                                    Bartender slaps his forehead, says, "Wait! I got it! You're the guy in the joke with no punchline!"

                                                                                                                                    Guy picks up his beer, takes a long swallow, and says, "Why, yes -- I am."

                                                                                                                                      The flight attendant answered, "We had an efficiency expert in to evaluate

                                                                                                                                      asked, "Excuse me for asking but why do you have a string hanging from

                                                                                                                                      "Well, when I go to the bathroom 1 just use the string. Since I never touched myself I don't need to wash my hands."

An elderly couple are always squabbling because the husband is getting forgetful and the wife is always nagging him to write things down. One evening as they're watching TV, the husband says he's going into the kitchen for a cup of coffee and does she want anything.

                                                                                                                                        "Yes, I'd like some ice cream. Oh, and put some of those little sprinkles on top and .. Oh wait, you'd better write this down."

                                                                                                                                        "I don't need to write it down. Anything else?"

                                                                                                                                        "A little bit of chocolate sauce would be good. Are you sure you don't need to write this down?"

                                                                                                                                        "NO!!! I'm not senile you know."

                                                                                                                                        The husband is gone for about 15 minutes before returning with a plate of bacon and scrambled eggs for his wife. She looks at the plate and then, pityingly, at him. "See? I told you that you should have written it down. WHERE'S MY TOAST????"

                                                                                                                                        1. A group of 40 year old buddies discuss where they should go for dinner. Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the Gasthof zum Lowen restaurant because the waitresses there have low cut blouses and nice figures.

                                                                                                                                          Ten years later, at 50 years of age, the guys once again discuss where they should dine. Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the Gasthof zum Lowen because the food there is very good and the wine selection is excellent.

                                                                                                                                          Ten years later at 60 years of age, the guys once again discuss where they should dine. Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the Gasthof zum Lowen because they can eat there in peace and quiet and the restaurant is smoke free.

                                                                                                                                          Ten years later, at 70 years of age, the guys once again discuss where they should dine. Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the Gasthof zum Lowen because the restaurant is wheel chair accessible and they even have an elevator.

                                                                                                                                          Ten years later, at 80 years of age, the guys once again discuss where they should dine. Finally it is agreed that they should meet at the Gausthof zum Lowen because they have never been there before.

                                                                                                                                                A man walks into a fine Parisian restaurant for dinner. The decor is elegant and the ambience is sophisticated, with soft lighting and beautiful music playing softly in the background. The waiter approaches him, with a linen napkin draped over his forearm and asks " What would monsieur like to eat this evening?" The man orders the onion soup and it is quickly brought to him, with a rich aroma and a layer of golden cheese melted across the top. The presentation is wonderful, but the diner notices that the waiter's thumb is sticking into the bowl, right into his soup. He decides not to say anything and enjoys the soup, thinking it is incredibly good. For the next course, he orders the Boeuf Bourguignon and again he receives a beautifully plated dish and again, the waiters thumb is sticking into the sauce. A side order of creamed spinach, a warm plum pudding dessert, each with that thumb right in the food.

                                                                                                                                                As the customer is finishing the meal, the waiter comes over and asks " How was you dinner, monsieur?" The man looks up at him and says " The restaurant design is quite chic, the food was extraordinary, probably the best I've ever eaten and the service..." The waiter detects some hesitation and asks "Was there something wrong, monsieur? I pride myself on gracious, efficient service." The gentleman replied "Oh, you were gracious and you were efficient all right, but when you brought the soup, I noticed your thumb was in it, the boeuf - again with the thumb, spinach - more thumb, the pudding -that damn thumb again. This is such a classy place, how could you do such a thing?" The waiter looked at him sheepishly and replied " Well, if you must know, my thumb is infected and the doctor advised me to keep it warm, as much as possible." The man exploded "Infected thumb, you son of a bitch, you wanna keep it warm, shove it up your ass!"

                                                                                                                                                The waiter protested "Monsieur, I do that in the kitchen, but in the dining room, it doesn't look nice."
