Reality Is Stealing My Jokes

Maybe I’d heard it somewhere else and forgetten and just assumed I’d made it up? So I did a google search to see if maybe I’d seen it on the Simpsons or something.

No, no Simpsons links, but I was astonished to see that my search got 641 hits.

Turns out that there really is a such thing as a lobster cappuccino. Anyone want the recipe?
