My favorite restaurant has a new waiter.
The other night he came to my table and he said: “I’m from Albania and we from Albania love to tell jokes.”

“How nice,” I answered.

“Do I bother you or shall I tell you a joke?” he asked.

“Go ahead.”

“A guy buys a package of cigarettes. He reads the warning. ‘Decreases sexual desire.’ ‘Give me the one with cancer,’ he says.”

“Good joke.”

“He thinks he can choose between cancer and decreased sexual desire.”

“I got the joke.”

"Next time you come in you should tell me a joke.”

I love this waiter.
