    The spicy lemongrass soup is…

  11. Droll not Troll | 4:13 am |

    The spicy lemongrass soup is what it is. Deal with it.

  12. Droll not Troll | 4:17 am |

    Q. Hey, spicy lemongrass soup, are you really?
    A. Yes, Siam.

  13. Raughing out Roud | 4:29 am |

    “Excuse me, waiter. Yes, you brought me a fish. I distinctly ordered the fish’s UNCLE.”

  14. Raughing out Roud | 4:33 am |

    It’s like there’s a party in my spicy lemongrass soup and all my sea friends are invited.

  15. Tom41 | 4:45 am |

    Looks like they totalled up the sea friends wrongly – notice the sticker!

  16. Big Fat Cat | 4:46 am |

    Totals up sea friends! The chef must be Aquaman.

  17. Droll not Troll | 4:46 am |

    Waiter! There’s a calculator in my spicy lemongrass soup!

  18. Frank Burns | 4:51 am |

    This is why we can’t have nice things.

  19. Ben | 5:02 am |

    Try their seafood – you’ll be de-lighted.

  20. iLock | 6:06 am |

    I knew I couldn’t trust my slippery snake in the grass uncle!
    So I broke the lampshade on his head!
    He can sleep with his fishy sea-friends…

  21. iLock | 6:07 am |

    If you love your friends, don’t set them free…eat them!

  22. jjhitt | 6:20 am |

    “It is an old Sicilian message: Luca Brasi sleeps with the lampshades.”

  23. Sparky | 7:37 am |

    It’s always the uncle with the lampshade on his head. What a party.

  24. Marum | 8:58 am |

    It was at a party, at my mate’s house in Thailand. At dusk, several lovely Thai ladies turned up dressed as lamps. What happened next was most illuminating….To say the least. 😉

  25. Marum | 9:17 am |

    @iLock
    If you truly love something,
    Then you should set it free,
    And if it loves you in return,
    Then it will come back to thee.

    But if Perchance it returneth not,
    And leaves a void,
    Within your heart,
    With nothing else to fill it.

    Then take a gun,
    And seek it out,
    And hunt it down,
    And kill it. 😆

  26. Marum | 9:23 am |

    Ah. The youth of the heart, and your lover in the morning.

    They’ve all gone, and left you, without any warning. 😥

    Chinese snake-head fish uncle didn’t react well to learning he was on the menu, breaks a lampshade in fright. Broken lampshade ends up on menu too because, wtf, it’s Thailand.

  28. Classic Steve | 2:29 pm |

    They were going to “hang a lampshade” on their poor language skills, but…

  29. Peter | 4:09 pm |

    And the Chinese snake-head fish aunt is . . . served after the Chinese snake-head fish uncle as dessert.

  30. Jim | 8:44 pm |

    I think we all know who broke the lampshade . . .

    Silence of the Lamps

  32. Seventy2rd o clock | 9:58 pm |

    – Waiter! Where my soup is?

  33. Seventy2rd o clock | 10:06 pm |

    – Waiter! Did you sea friend?
    – No, Sir. The lampshade is broken.

  34. Seventy2rd o clock | 10:57 pm |

    – Mommy? My soup is not!

  35. Filboid | 11:48 am |

    86 the lampshade!

    The spicy lemongrass soup specializes in corporate tax accounting.

  38. Biff the Understudy | 8:58 am |

    The lampshade is broken because a customer passed out while wearing it.

  39. spareocean | 12:24 am |

    Wow! Talk about multitasking your diner is also a house repair shop.

    Ok I’ll take fried noodles and please fix my faucet too.

  40. anonymous | 7:17 am |

    I’ll take the Chinese snake-head fish uncle please. You know, when the Chinese snake-head-fish uncle gets back from Lowes with the new lampshade.
