|Hawai'i humor is muti-ethnic, many times the Portuguese (Portugee) are the blunt of local humor... Michael Herr our regular scheduled Aloha Friday guest-blogger is on vacation and will return in two weeks!|
Portuguese SausageEveryone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'racism' these days.
So, the customer asked, "In what aisle could I find the Portuguese sausage?"
The clerk looks at him and says, "Are you Portuguese?"
The guy (clearly offended) says, "Well, yes I am. But let me ask you something.
If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?
Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?
Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?
Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?'
If I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?"
The clerk says, "Well, no, I probably wouldn't!"
With deep self-righteous indignation, the guy says, "Well then, why did you ask me if I'm Portuguese is it because I asked for Portuguese sausage?"
The clerk replied, "Because you're in Home Depot."
