“Our restaurant’s snails are world-famous."/"I know, one of them’s just been serving me.”

A restaurant joke about slow service is:

Restaurant Owner: Our restaurant’s snails are world-famous.
Diner: I know, one of them’s just been serving me.


The joke has been cited in print since at least 2016.
