This used to be a regular Short Order feature, but it was suspended mainly because there simply aren't that many good jokes about eating, restaurants, or food. Surprising, but true. There are actually lots and lots of jokes about the subjects, but funny ones are far fewer. Our supply was just about exhausted. I'm going to start exploring again, but here in the meantime are a few oldies but goodies.

I went to a fancy French restaurant called 'Deja Vu'. The headwaiter said, 'Don't I know you?' ~Rod Schmidt

Why does Sea World have a seafood restaurant? I'm halfway through my fish burger and I realize, 'Oh my God...I could be eating a slow learner!' ~Lynda Montgomery.
We have just received news that Betty Crocker has passed away. Funeral services will be held tomorrow at 3:50 for 25 to 30 minutes. ~Unknown
If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and talks like a duck, it probably needs a little more time in the microwave. ~Lori Dowdy
