A gentleman, having ordered a meal at a fine London restaurant, decides that he'd like some wine to accompany his meal; so he summons the sommelier and asks for a bottle of hock.

"Hock, sir?" asks the sommelier.

"Yes, hock, man. You know, hic, haec, hoc, hunc, hanc, hoc etc."

"Hmm ... very good, sir."

The food arrives, but without the wine, which perturbs the gentleman slightly as he's accustomed to a high quality of service. He begins to dine and at the next opportunity he beckons the sommelier again.

"Didn't I order a bottle of hock?"

"Yes sir, but then you declined it."

Good one Bailey.

I wonder what kind of water that gentleman orders with his meals: expensive bottled imports or Source Municipal?

I once made a Meeting Template for our old Groupwise electronic calendar that had a picture of people sitting around a table with a flip chart and the Latin slogan Convenimus ergo summus! (We meet, therefore we are!).
