“Waiter, my soup is cold."/ “It’s Gazpacho."/ “Well, Gazpacho, my soup is cold.”

Gazpacho is a cold vegetable soup. It’s not the name of a waiter, but there’s a restaurant joke:

Diner: Waiter, my soup is cold.
Waiter: It’s Gazpacho.
Diner: Well, Gazpacho, my soup is cold.

The gazpacho joke has been cited in print since at least 2017-2018 and has been printed on several images.

Wikipedia: Gazpacho
Gazpacho (Spanish pronunciation: [ɡaθˈpatʃo]; Southern peninsular Spanish: [ɡahˈpa(t)ʃo]) or Gaspacho (Portuguese: [ɡɐʃˈpaʃu]), also called Andalusian gazpacho, is a cold soup made of raw, blended vegetables. It originated in the southern regions of the Iberian peninsula and spread into other areas. Gazpacho is widely eaten in Spain and Portugal, particularly during hot summers, as it is refreshing and cool.
