This was many years ago, it was very late at night, I was very tired, and we were at Denny's. (Hopefully everyone reading this has been in the same situation and can therefore relate to the following bout of stupidity.) I'm looking at the menu and trying to differentiate the price difference between an order of pancakes with bacon and an order of pancakes plus a side order of bacon. Really. That's what was going on in my addlepated, semiconscious brain.
Unfortunately, what I said out loud was, "What's the difference between pancakes and pancakes with bacon?"
A moment of silence was followed by my friend Rich saying, "You get... bacon?"
They've never let me live that down. Bastards.
