1009. Fractured French

 Fans of Nat'l. Public Radio's "A Prairie Home Companion" will recognize the mispronunciation of the last word in line 3.  Say it "berf" to make it rhyme.

A drunk out to dine pressed his luck.
Said to waitress, "What's good?  I hate duck."
Waitress:  "Like shrimp and boeuf?
You might try "Surf and Turf."
Said the drunk, "Is that like 'fuck and suck?'"

Those last two lines actually occurred at my cousin's wedding reception!  (Can you tell I'm now scrambling for material?)
