I should sent this over to “In Passing” (see link on the right) but I didn’t hear it in San Francisco so it probably doesn’t count.
While waiting in line for my beef and shitake mushroom lo mein (which was gross, by the way. Maybe get some meat that humans can chew, wouldja?) a woman looked at the sign to see what they were serving at that station and said “Shit-take mushrooms? Shit take? What’s that?”
I should have said “Two steps down from a spit take.”
