Cheeky Immigrants

Good Day Friends! Happy Wednesday!

Recently, my dad told me a short story that still makes me chuckle and I want to share it with you.

Many moons ago at the original Koutouki location on 124th st. next to the Roxy,  Yianni my father, would roast meat on a rotissirie on the sidewalk just as he would back in the old country to entice passer byers.

On this occasion though, Yianni was roasting an entire lamb over the spit on the street corner.  Two neighbourhood children approached and thought it would be kind to strike up some idle chit chat.

"Sir, what kind of animal is that spinning over the barbeque?"  "German Shepherd" replied Yianni in his thick southern European accent.

The two kids ran home in horror and Yianni received a few phone calls.
Good one Dad. Real funny.  Poor kids are probably traumatized for life.

  Aaahh... Few people can get away with that sort of humour.

With Love,
