A patron at a fancy restaurant asks the waiter: "Which of the entrees is vegetarian?"
"I recommend the ravioli with wild mushrooms, sir. It is tonight's special and it is excellent."
"Are you sure it is entirely vegetarian?"
"Yes sir, I am sure of it.", the waiter reassured. And so the patrons orders the ravioli. Shortly, the waiter brings the patron his meal. As he turns about to walk away, the patron calls him back: "Waiter! The raviolis are stuffed with meat!"
"Yes sir, the raviolis are stuffed with ground lamb."
"But you told me the raviolis are entirely vegetarian!"
"Yes sir... You see, lamb comes from sheep..."


This is a better version & more true to life:

Patron at a steakhouse: "What do you have here that is vegetarian?"

Waiter: "Well, the cow..." | commentedBlogger ZLN on Monday, July 23, 2007

The second one is better, because both halves of the double meaning of vegetarian at least vaguely make sense. Ravioli's don't eat people.

Sorry, ravioli's don't eat anything. Nor do they eat people, but I have no idea where that came from. Probably thinking about why cows sometimes aren't vegetarian lit up my cannibalism synapse. | commentedBlogger Tim on Wednesday, August 01, 2007
