Apologies from the Management...


See anything, er, wrong... with the Persian restaurant site above? No? Well, how 'bout just a bit... closer...?


Heh, guess it's good when a restaurant knows what to apologize for before you've even had the meal...

And yes, I'm aware I don't normally do funny photo posts, but this is a real-and-for-true web site my friend "The Rhet" sent today, contact info removed by me to protect the incontin-- er, innocent.

Just had to share.

Maybe their food is really hilarious?

You should apologize for the same.

Shawn- Those wacky, wacky Peruvians.... Always with the wit and practical jokes. It's why they put Machu Picchu on a mountaintop, don't ya know...

"Let's just see those tourists try to get up HERE! (snicker)"

And it also explains the Nasca lines... "Did I just see a giant... MONKEY?"

They're wacky that way. :)

And, erm, sorry for any incontinence. (May I never say that phrase again!)

I'm not sure I'd want to go to a restaurant that had incontinence. Of any sort.

Seems like it might be a bit smelly. Even over the pungent aroma of Persian food (which I adore, by the way).

When you see something like that for real, it's worth posting.

I think I'll be dining elsewhere.

;-)

Melanie said...

Definitely worth posting! Thanks for the laugh. Being in the restaurant business myself, I can really appreciate that customers don't want to deal with incontinence and food in the same area.

Jenn Thorson said...

Mother- I love Peruvian food too, and kidding aside, the friend who sent the site link says this particular restaurant is wonderful...

And so is definitely making a case for why copy editors should have jobs. :)


ReformingGeek- I can only imagine the moment when the restaurant folks find out about the typo... Poor folks.

Melanie- No. "In" words... "inconvenience," "incompetence," "incontinence"... All no-no's in the restaurant biz... :)

If I ever walk into a restaurant and they apologize for making me pee before I eat... its time to walk back out..

Maybe fast food joints should join in and apologize for giving gas.

Nice.

Jenn Thorson said...

Nipsy- You may have something there:

"To our valued customers: we would like to apologize in advance for any flatulence you might experience as a result of our carefully prepared soy-based, heat-lamped cuisine....

We here at BurgerBongo are dedicated to giving our customers a pleasant, relatively methane-free experience, and yet sometimes, nature and molded 2% beef patties combine to create..."

Today's specials include... ahhhh, sweet relief... sorry, where was I?

Jenn Thorson said...

FreetheUnicorns- Heh, your comment reminded me of that scene in "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" where Steve Martin, in the guise of crazy brother Ruprect asks at the dinner table, "May I go to the bathroom?" Then gets a wistful look for a moment and says... "Thank you."

I like to pee. I don't think I'll eat there. Thank you. :-)
