Server: Oh, yes.
Customer: Fine. I'll have the first one.
Server: Papa's Hot Poppers?
Server: Large or small?
Server: They only come in small.
Customer: Then give me two small.

Customer: Just give me one of the popper things.
Server: Great! That's one Chicken Lickin' sandwich, and one Papa's Hot Poppers. Anything to drink with that?

Server: Okay, that's 1 Chicken Lickin', 1 Papa's Hot Poppers, and 1 Ice Tea.
Server: Is that small, medium, large, or jumbo?
Server: For here or to go?
Customer: To go.
Server: Paper or plastic?
Server: Cash or charge?
Server: Democrat or Republican? Sorry, got carried away.
Customer: Look, forget it. I'll go to the place across the street.
Server: But they use fillers and artificial ingredients. Our products are made from 100% real ingredients.
Server: Yep. We only use real chicken in the chicken sandwich and real cherries in the cherry pie.
Customer: In that case, let me have a number 4 combo.
Server: Here you go. Enjoy. (pulls out tray with stuffed dog, shoelace, empty cup)
Customer: What's all this?
Server: This is your order. Enjoy.
Customer: What's that supposed to be? (holds up dog)

Customer: And this? (holds up shoelace)
Server: Those are your shoestring fries.
Customer: And the enpty cup?
Server: That's your Coke Zero.
Customer: That does it, I'm going to the place across the street.
Server: Aren't you forgetting something?
Customer: What's that?
Server: You forgot to pay. That'll be $6.50.
Customer: Six-fifty? For a pooch, a shoelace, and an empty cup?
Server: Yes, ma'am.
Customer: Is plastic okay?
Customer: Here. (hands him plastic bottle) I have six hundred and forty-nine more out in the car. (exits)
