“In the restaurant: ‘Would you like a table?’  ‘No, a lamp for 5 please.’”

A jocular response to an obvious restaurant question is:
 
WAITER: Would you like a table?
A: No, a lamp for 5 please.

 
The joke was posted on Twitter by FUNNY TWEETS on October 7, 2012, and has been printed on several images.
