“Do you serve fish cakes?” (restaurant joke)

A “fishcake” is a cake made out of fish, but a joke has it that a “fish cake” is a cake made for a fish. The fishcake joke was posted on the newsgroup cableinet.chatter on June 5, 1998:

“Man walks into a chip shop with a huge cod draped around his neck and say ‘Excuse me, do you serve fish cakes?’. The woman behind the counter replies ‘Yes we do sir’, and the says ‘That’s good cos it’s his birthday today’.”
