The Unkindest Cutlet Of All

Dude trying to buy a deli sandwich: Yo, that chicken cutlet… Is that chicken or fish?
Deli guy: It's beef.
(really long pause)
Dude
: Is it chicken or fish?

Deli guy: What are smoking, man? What kind of question is that? It's a chicken cutlet.
(another long pause)
Dude
: Nah, for real. Is it chicken?

Deli guy: Yeah! It's chicken!
Dude: So, how come it looks like fish?
Deli guy: Because chickens lay eggs… And fish also lay eggs.
Dude: Alright.
(long pause, then dude looks for someone else in the back)
Dude
: What happened to my friend who works here?

Thug #2: Aw, shit!
Thug #1: When I heard that, I was cryin’. Like, straight-up tears, I was cryin’.
Thug #2: Damn…
Thug #1: I can’t even tell you what I did to get that bitch unpregnant. I’ll say this much: it involved chloroform. –6 train
