A businesswoman had arranged an important formal dinner party at
her home where they were going to serve stuffed whole baked trout
as the main course.
While the guests were eating the appetiser, the cook came to the hostess and summoned her urgently to the kitchen.
She went and the cook explained that while she was serving the starter, the cat ate a big chunk of the trout.
The hostess said, “Just fill the hole with stuffing and turn the other side up, nobody will notice.”
The fish was served and when they were nearly finished eating, the
cook called the hostess to the kitchen again to tell her the cat had died.
The hostess rushed back to the dinner party and apologised, “Something
was wrong with the trout and we’re all going to have to have our stomachs pumped out at the hospital.”
When the hostess got back she asked the cook, “Where ‘s the cat?”
“Oh,” the cook replied, “He’s still by the road where the truck ran over him.”
