Insatiable Soup Du Jour



An old Jewish man goes to a diner every day for lunch.  He always orders
the soup du jour.  One day the manager asks him how he liked his meal.
The old man replies (with Yiddish accent) "Wass goot, but you could give
a little more bread."

So the next day the manager tells the waitress to give him four slices
of bread.  "How was your meal, sir?" the manager asks.  "Wass goot, but
you could give a little more bread," comes the reply.

So the next day the manager tells the waitress to give him eight slices
of bread.  "How was your meal today, sir?" the manager asks.  "Wass
goot, but you could give a little more bread," comes the reply.

So ... the next day the manager tells the waitress to give him a whole
loaf of bread with his soup.  "How was your meal, sir?" the manager
asks, when he comes to pay.  "Wass goot, but you could give just a
little more bread," comes the reply once again.

The manager is now obsessed with seeing this customer say that he is
satisfied with his meal, so he goes to the bakery, and orders a
six-foot-long loaf of bread.  When the man comes in as usual the next
day, the waitress and the manager cut the loaf in half, butter the
entire length of each half, and lay it out along the counter, right next
to his bowl of soup.  The old man sits down, and devours both his bowl
of soup, and both halves of the six-foot-long loaf of bread.

The manager now thinks he will get the answer he is looking for, and
when the old man comes up to pay for his meal, the manager asks in the
usual way:  "How was your meal TODAY, sir?"

The old Jew replies:  "It wass goot as usual, but I see you are back to
giving only two slices of bread!"
