Out here we used to have a Drive Through labelled:
Arigato’s Sushi, Sauerkraut, Pastrami, and Squid Burgers

Conjures some pretty trefty Klingon fare, eh?

A party of four in black suits and sunglasses enters the restaurant.
Maitre D’: Welcome to Squid’s… hey, what the hell? Why are you pulling guns on me?
Leader: We need to see the owner. Now!
Maitre D’: Um, we’re owned by a corporation, Chapel Hill Restaurant Group.
Leader: Yup, as we thought. Not owned by a squid.
Maitre D’: Look, we serve calamari, Cajun squid rings, that’s why the name, and it’s cute… [click] You handcuffed me!
Leader: I’m afraid we have to book you as a material witness. Aggravated abuse of the possessive.
Maitre D’: That’s not against the law! I know! This is my day job while I’m writing a novel. I have a master’s in English!
Leader: It has been ever since a panda shot up a restaurant in Charlotte and left a copy of “Eats, Shoots and Leaves” as a calling card.
Maitre D’: Oh, crap. You’re the punctuation police.
The leader smiles thinly.
