At our Graduation Ceremonies the speakers were Judy Oxenberg, Debbie Kornblau

We noticed that all the waiters in this New York restaurant
carried two spoons in their vest pocket. Naturally, we were
curious. We asked our waiter why.

go to the bathroom, we use the string to pull ourselves out
and aim. Therefore, we do not have to stop to wash our
I replied, "I understand how you can get yourself out and
aim, but how do you get yourself back in?"
"Well," replied the waiter, "I don't know about the other
guys, but I use the two spoons!"
