That special leaves me feeling kinda blue.
Penny for the food
waiter, “How’d you find the steak?”
customer, “I moved the parsley aside and there it was.”
Ask us about our red plate.
Seperate charge for non regurgitated food.
Salt $5 per shake.
The café must be in a tourist area.
No young people in there – no wonder!
That plate’s mine now. I’m keeping it.
$5 only for purple people
No Shoes. No Shirt. No Service*
*No Service regardless of what you wear.
Reminds me of the time we were thinking of buying a sailing boat – x amount for the boat, then XAMOUNT FOR THE SAIL , etc. COULDN’T BELIEVE IT! – told it to shove it where the sun don’t shine!! What’s the point of having a sailing boat without sails??
Over at the Too Literal Diner: “Open 24 hours.” (But not in a row.):
A nod to Steven Wright.
Looks like another place for Wiley Bears to visit. Good luck getting away with giving them empty plates.
That’s now so bad. Now, when I was a kid we had to bring our own plate. And we had to walk 15 blocks in 3 inches of snow to get there.
I wondered what Mr. Haney from Green Acres was doing.
“I decided to leave my law practice and open a restaurant.”
wait what, so we’re paying for the plate and being charged extra for food to be put on it? Maybe I’ll eat somewhere else…
1.9 trillion can’t be wrong, can it?
Best plate lunches I ever had were in Hawaii.
Extra, extra $ for organic food that won’t bother a poor Vikings tummy…
One to make me laugh out loud
Yeah pass the blue plate over here man.
Former lawyers on the dole.
A-La-Cart menu….everything is extra $$$$$
It’s like the call-to-action commercials for gadgets. There’s this unwritten set of rules that includes the “if you act now, we’ll DOUBLE the offer!” bit. That used to mean the item priced at $19.99 wasn’t worth even half that money, so they send you two. But now, they still put that double-the-offer line in, but quickly add, “just pay a separate fee”. How much is that fee?
Our new Fiestaware dish set means blue plate special every night. We got a mix of medium and dark blue (Cubs blue and Twins blue – guess where we’ve lived?).
In the booth you can’t see, there’s an attorney with a seven-course meal on his.
I never had a blue plate special. What is so special about a “blue plate special”?
That’s the place where you write in the tip in illegible small lettering. :)
Tipping is mandatory.
The door is not right. The wording is in the wrong direction and “OPEN” sign wouldn’t be on the inside (unless the cafe’ were closed).
Just wondering… has anyone seen a ‘blue plate special’? I’ve heard about them all my life but never seen one.
It’s all you can’t eat.
Think I’ll head over to The Chatterbox Cafe instead.
A la cart cafe
Waaaaay funny, Wiley!!
Everybody there is on a diet, but just had to get out of the house after a year in COVIDtine.
It would be funnier if they were wearing masks and it was the “COVID Blue Plate” special.
The retirement home where my grandmother lived had the prettiest blue plates. They weren’t completely blue but they had some kind of design. I didn’t understand why a room with nice plates and such would be called “hospitality”. I later learned that what I thought that should be was on the third floor. As in the military, they called that “sick bay”. Years later, I learned that before they built the nursing home on the same property, that was the section for people needing to be in a nursing home.
