Is this acceptable to you?

Last night we dined at one of our favorite places to eat, The Macaroni Grill. Sabi was thoroughly enjoying the Kids Menu and all of the activities and jokes that were in it. Here is one of the jokes from the menu:

Q: Why does the Mexican weather report make you hungry?

A: It's "chili" today, Hot Tamale!

What do YOU think of this joke?

Well hot dog, Kelly, what's your beef? Do you think there is racism sandwiched in the joke?

I thought the joke was stupid, regardless of the racist undertones. I wouldn't let it bother you. Clearly whoever wrote it has no sense of humor. :)

Dumb joke - even for children.

They are probably paying the joke writers minimum wage (but they got a 4 or 5 on their exams - reference to previous post).

We have Romano's Macaroni Grills here as well and I love going there. I just don't do it that often because the eyes are bigger than the belly if you know what I mean. And I don't really need all those extra yummy calories. I think one of my favorites is the shrimp portofino with garlic and pine nuts. Now I'm drooling!!

As far as the"joke" goes it is stupid; but I really don't think it was meant to be racist...just a play on words. Johneen

Not that funny. Kids jokes are usually a little more clever on the puns.
