Can You Bear It!
Here's a reprint of a piece submitted to the great Tips du Jour newsletter, a
Recipe du Jour family member.
A panda bear walks into a cafe and orders a sandwich and a drink. After
he is finished eating, the waiter comes over to bring him the check. When
the waiter arrives at the table, he just starts to ask "Would you like any
Then the panda reaches into his fur, pulls out a gun, and shoots the waiter
dead. He wipes off his chin with his napkin, gets up, and starts to
walk out. Just as he is about to go through the door, the manager
'Wait a minute ", he yells. "You just killed my best waiter. Besides
that, you didn't even pay for your sandwich."
The panda grasps the manager by the throat, lifts him up, and growls, "Hey
man, I'm a PANDA. Do you know what that means? Why don't you
look it up?"
At this the Panda walks out the door and ambles down the street.
The manager, shaken, returns to his office and consults a dictionary.
"Panda - a large mammal of the Asian mountain forests related to
raccoons and true bears and characterized by bold black and white
Eats shoots and leaves."
