Waiter: "Tea or coffee, gentlemen?"
1st customer: "I'll have tea."
2nd customer: "Me, too - and be sure the cup is clean!"
                 (Waiter exits, returns)
Waiter: "OK, I've got two teas. Which of you asked for the clean cup?"

How many waitresses does it take to change a light bulb?
Three. Two to stand around bitching about it and one to go get the manager.

Sid and Sy were sitting in a Mexican restaurant. "Sid," asked Sy, "Are there any Jews in Mexico?"
"I don't know," Sy replied. "Why don't we ask the waiter?"
When the waiter came by, Sy asked him, "Are there any Mexican Jews?"
"I don't know sir, let me ask," the waiter replied, and he went into the kitchen. He returned in a few minutes and said, "No, sir. No Mexican Jews."
"Are you sure?" Sy asked.
"I will check again, sir." the waiter replied and went back to the kitchen.
While he was still gone, Sid said, "I can't believe there are no Jews in Mexico. Our people are scattered everywhere."
When the waiter returned he said, "Sir, no Mexican Jews."
"Are you positive?" Sid said.
"Sir, I ask everyone," the waiter replied, exasperated. "We have orange Jews, prune Jews, tomato Jews, and grape Jews, but no one ever hear of Mexican Jews!"

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
