I got a big laugh out of yesterday’s Pearls Before Swine cartoon, which had the following dialogue in a restaurant:
Waiter: Here you go sir.
Pig: What is that?
Waiter: It’s what you ordered.
Pig: Some man’s name written in mustard?
Waiter: Our signature dish. If you ask me, it’s not worth fifty bucks.
An image of an oval dish came from Wikimedia Commons.
