The joy of multiculturalism

I was in the staff room on Friday morning waiting for the briefing to begin. As usual I was sitting with Jagtar, Wayne and Martin. The conversation got around to eating out. Remembering my birthday meal I told the others:

I'm going for a curry tonight.

"Me too." said Martin.

"And me." said Wayne.

As one man we turned to look at Jagtar.

"I'm off out for fish and chips."
