Taliban, Halibut- Same Difference

in Conversations with People

*You know really what chaps my ass? People with sub-par intellect who think they’re smarter than most. Erf? But how? Wah? Why? I was dating a podiatrist who was very sweet but just not the sharpest tool in the shed. If he didn’t proclaim himself to be smart, I may have let this telephone conversation slide…*

Podiatrist: Believe it or not, I didn’t order my usual filet mignon.
Me: Oh yeah? What’d you order?
Podiatrist: I got the BBQ salmon, and it was delicious! I would have ordered the other fish, but they were out.
Me: What was it?
Podiatrist: Hmm, I think it was called… Taliban?
Me: *silent*… *thinking he HAS to be joking*…*awkward laugh* No really, what was it?
Podiatrist: Yeah, it was Taliban.
Me: Uh, you mean tilapia?
Podiatrist: No, no…
Me: HALIBUT? Tilapia? Are you messing with me??
Podiatrist: What? Huh? No, I’m sure it was Taliban.
Me: Dude, you were not served Taliban. Was it tilapia or halibut?
Podiatrist: Ha-li-but? Yeah! That’s it! Halibut!!
Me: Hey, I gotta go. I’ll call you back later…

I should have asked if he had some hamas and pita as an appetizer.
