“Would you like to hear today’s special?” (restaurant joke)

A waiter or waitress often tells diners about the day’s special menu. “Today’s special” does not mean that the day itself is special, but there are jokes.

This was posted on Twitter by Ben (and others) on June 24, 2014:

The waiter asked, “Would you like to hear today’s special?”
“Yes please,” I smiled.
“Today is special,” he replied, then walked off.


The joke probably originated on the Sickipedia website.

Right after we sat down for dinner, the waiter said, “Would you like to hear today’s special?”
I said, “Yes please, thanks.”
The waiter responded: Today is special.
