They should have that in English cuisine

A few days ago, I introduced a couple of friends to a new hole in the wall Pakistani restaurant. As we sat at our table awaiting our order, I blithely commented that the most interesting thing about the restaurant so far were the cricket bats.

To which my friend replied, "I don't remember seeing those on the menu."

Of course, I was referring to these:

And not some dish made from a mixture of insects and chiropterid meat. Although I'm sure that would be delicious in a curry.

After laughing over the momentary confusion, my friend concluded,

"But I wouldn't put it past you to order it if it was on the menu."

Well put, sir.
