How old are you people on here? You've never heard any of those ancient restaurant gags?

French restaurant - frogs' legs? - hop over there and get me a sandwich;

Chinese restaurant - this chicken is rubbery - fang you velly much sir;

etc. etc. ad nauseam.

At least 45 years old.

Don't get me wrong - this thread is fun - I like a laugh..

..but a new format? No way.


It's the what the staff are having is what you are missing.

Is "I'll have what the staff are having" even a phrase?
If not then it's nigh on ungooglable
Nigh on Ungoogable is a phrase before you ask.

I went to Steve Sunshines restaurant and said I'll have what the staff are having
But he didn't recognise the order, so I had cold chops instead.

I went to a laboratory cafe and said I'll have what the staff are having
So I had a very nasty infection.

I don't know If I've been misunderstood or not

Anyway getting back to the original rules
I went to the funnest restaurant in the world & said I'll have what the staff are having.
So they gave me a ball.

I went to the canteen of a 'spa' in Thailand and said "I'll have what the staff are having".
They gave me a facial

I went to Russell Brand's favourite restaurant and asked for, "whatever the staff are having".
They gave me antibiotics

A hare went into a greyhound owned restaurant and was going to have what the staff were having. But thought better of it.

I went to Stylee's restaurant but I couldn't order anything because he had deleted the menu.

I went to the [insert controversial comedy eating venue here] the other day and said I'll have what the managers having, but they must not have heard me because I didn't laugh once.

Yes, that's the name of the place.
