After more than a year without eating in-person at a restaurant, fully-vaccinated father-of-two Jim Branson, 43, sat down at his local Applebee’s and was able to make his first bad pun to a waitress since early 2020.
Branson, who ordered baby back ribs and onion rings, responded to his waitress’ inquiry of, “How are you all doing today” with an enthusiastic, “Well, I’m eating good. In the neighborhood,” while winking at his wife to mark his first bad pun delivered in a restaurant in 385 days.
When asked how he felt delivering the pun, Branson enthusiastically replied, “You know, I think I nailed it. It’s just like riding a bike.”
