A banner on  the front of a Middle Eastern restaurant in Dearborn:

"Now serving Homos"

"Los Angeles is the only city in the world where there are two separate lines at holy communion. One line is for the regular body of Christ. One line is for the fat-free body of Christ. Our Lady of Malibu Beach serves a great free-range body of Christ over angel-hair pasta."

Heheh, we had a Phuu Ping (Pronounced "poo ping") Thai restaurant in Seattle. Evidently Phuu Ping is the name of a famous mountain in N. Thailand. After several months the name changed to Lanna Thai. The owner was the same. I said "I see you changed your name." "Yeahhhhh...." "You know what it sound-" "Yeah, we knoooowww." :)

One of my favorite restaurants in Cairo has a sign outside the door, trying to entice visitors to come in. Unfortunately my photos didn't come out, but some of the better text is:

Experience the best + the worse as in Aesop's Fable

Eat unpronouncable and undescribable dishes at the oldest restaurant
