A man was feeling rather hungry one lunch time, so he went into a new restaurant that had opened up close to the office where he worked.
While he was looking at the lunch menu, he saw a notice that read, “Order anything you want. We will give you $300 if we are unable to serve you any entrée that you order”.
So, when the waitress came to take his order, he mentioned the notice and said that he wanted elephant liver on rye.
The waitress took the man’s order and then went out into the restaurant kitchen.
All of a sudden, the man heard terrible noises coming from the kitchen. There was the sound of feet stamping, screaming and the banging of pots and pans. It went on and on for ages.
The noise finally stopped and the cook appeared from the kitchen.
He walked over to the man’s table and slapped down $300 in front of him saying, “I can’t believe it. We’re out of rye”.
