Food Joke

Wu`s Coffee Abraham Grossman, the rich young bachelor, is entertaining a gorgeous woman, Gloria, with dinner in his penthouse. As his Chinese servant pours the coffee, Gloria asks, "Wu, how do you make such delicious coffee?" "Me take plenty boiled water," explains Wu, "and stir in coffee, velly, velly slow." "Yes," says Gloria, "but it is so clear. How do you strain it so cleverly?" "Me take master’s silk socks..." begins Wu. "What!" shouts Grossman. "You take my best silk socks to strain the coffee?" "Oh, no, master," replies Wu. "Me never take master’s clean socks."
