  • Cooking Pun

    chefA rare delicacy indeed is sautéed sloth.

    Using the middle toe of the great Australian three-toed sloth, the only edible part of the creature, the careful chef de-bones it, pounds it as with veal, and sautés it briefly over a hot flame with shallots, carrot circles, and the faintest touch of Tabasco. Prepared in this fashion, sloth is an excellent main course, not unlike alligator in texture and taste.

    Many people are under the false impression that sloth does not make a good meal, but this is because they've eaten it improperly prepared. It can only be sautéed, a fact unappreciated in culinary circles.

    Too many cooks broil the sloth.

  • Take Out Talk

    peanutsA man goes to a restaurant, orders some takeout, and sits down to wait for his food.

    While he waits, he grabs a handful of peanuts from the bowl on the counter, and as he starts to chew, he hears a voice say, "That's a beautiful tie, is that silk? Very NICE choice!"

    Wondering who made the comment, he looks around and doesn't see anyone nearby who could be speaking to him. With a shrug, he pops a few more peanuts into his mouth.

    Next he hears the voice say, "Those shoes are stylin', my man. Are they Italian leather? They look GRRREAT!"

    He whirls around to again but sees no one near him. He glances nervously around and then at his shoes, which he tucks self-consciously under the stool.

    A little freaked out, he grabs another handful of peanuts. This time the voice continues with, "That suit looks FANTASTIC! Is it an Armani? Very nice!"

    He immediately calls the waiter over and says, "Look. I keep hearing these voices telling me how great my tie, my shoes, and my suit look - what's up with that? Am I GOING CRAZY??"

    "Oh," the waiter nonchalantly replies. "It's just the peanuts."

    "The PEANUTS?!?" the astonished man asks, staring at the bowl beside him.

    "Yes," replies the waiter, "…they're complimentary."

    Thoughtfully, he replied, "I guess I was just trying to delay the inedible."
