    One of the rare instances at the diner when we actually see a plate with food on it.

    How much artie could an artichoke choke if an artichoke could choke arte? Say that really fast with repetitions.

    Driving through Salinas, CA, last year, I saw artichokes growing in a field. Then I heard Salinas is the “Artichoke Capital of the World”.

    It’s frustrating having to choose your words carefully.

    One slip of the tongue and the sensitive person never lets you forget it.

    I like artichokes – both hot and cold ones.

    Reminds me of when Lays had a sale on their potato chips with cayenne pepper. Had an image of a flame on the back with “Hot!” So some store stocker had built a display with a sign that said, “Hot Lays $.99”. I asked him, “Hey, when did you guys expand into service work?” blank stare

    Oh, pun fun, ehh, Cartoon-Boy?

    Artichokes are one of the less-common of the three usual beddings for moussaka (eggplant being most often found; potatoes my favorite, and artichokes not at all bad). I just threw this in ’cause ’Toon-Boy is Greek. Have an ouzo!

    I like artichokes, but too bad I don’t have them often.

    This is a lot like the “no offense” and “cantaloupe” puns earlier.
