T-Rex: Tom yum chicken fried rice, please!
Utahraptor: This is a pizza place.
T-Rex: The status is worth the starvation.

Prompted by a conversation over the Thai place near work where I buy lunch occasionally. I always get the chilli basil fried rice, but a friend said he got tom yum fried rice. Which is not on the menu. How did he even know he could order that??
I'm now convinced my friend is secretly a member of some Thai organised crime syndicate.
