Walking through Shaftesbury this afternoon with my friend Matt, while discussing the joys of KFC we found ourselves outside a rather smart Indian restaurant that neither of us has yet visited.
Perusing the very smartly typeset menu in the window, I heard Matt say, “Look, they do Tandoori McSquirrel.” Somewhat surprised, I followed his pointed finger to the legend “Tandoori Mixed Grill”, which is of course exactly what he’d said. In rapid speech, the one could be misinterpreted as the other, but it says something for my fevered imagination that I could mishear something so normal as something so hysterically improbable.
I giggled like a schoolgirl for a good 5 minutes. Matt says he’s going to order Tandoori McSquirrel at the first opportunity.
