Dinner at Bamboo Garden

Miriam, a European volunteer, attempting to order her meal): I’ll take the lamb, please.
Indian server: We are out of lamb, sorry.
Miriam: Okay. What else do you have?
Server: We have chicken. And beef.
Miriam: Okay, I’ll take the steak.
Server: Very good. I’m sorry for not having the lamb.
Miriam: I’m sorry for eating your cow!
(Table erupts in laughter, including the server, who actually gets the joke)
