Anything

The waiter said, “Welcome to Harrington’s Restaurant where anything is possible.” 

“Menus?” said Mitch as he and Sylvie sat.

“No need. Order anything.”

“Anything?”

Anything.

Mitch snorted. “I’ll have the rib of Woolly Rhino.”

“Stop it, Mitch,” groaned Sylvie.

“Very good, sir,” said the waiter. He took Sylvie’s order and left.

Sylvie hissed at Mitch. “Stop being a jerk!”

Ten minutes later, a huge man walked in splattered with blood and carrying a massive gun. He said, “Who ordered the Woolly rib?”

“Now you’ve done it, Mitch,” quavered Sylvie.

Timidly, Mitch said, “I was kidding, really.”

“No worries, mate. Your ribs will be done in a jiffy! Hope you’re hungry.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

  1. Dear Eric,

    Oooh the possibilities are endless. And I only thought to order burnt ends. 😉 Fun story. No spews though.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  2. After chowing down on the wooly rhino rib, did Mitch suddenly grow a large mono-brow and begin grunting ‘Thog like meat! Thog want more!’? Asking for a friend…:-)

    Beats a crocodile sandwich. Although, dinosaur soup would have been impressive.

    While he eats, I’d like to look around that restaurant that must have a time travel machine hidden somewhere. Fun story.
