An American Tourist in Spain

An American touring Spain stopped at a local restaurant for dinner. While sipping a glass of wine, he noticed a sizzling platter being delivered to the next table. It not only looked good, it smelled wonderful. He asked the waiter, “What is that dish???? The waiter smiled. “Ah, señor, you have excellent taste! Those are from the morning bullfight. After the matador kills the bull, his testicles are removed and brought to our restaurant. Ah, such a delicacy!??? The American was momentarily daunted by the origin of the dish, but decided, what the hell? I’m on vacation! “Bring me an order!??? The waiter frowned. “I am so sorry, señor. But since there is but one bullfight each day, there is but one serving each day. But you could place your order now for tomorrow and I would be pleased to serve you this specialty!??? He placed his order and impatiently waited 24 hours. The next evening he returned to the same restaurant and the same waiter proudly served him the one and only order of the delicacy of the day. After a few delicious bites, he called the waiter over to his table. “These are surely delicious, but they seem so much smaller than yesterday’s serving???? The waiter replied, “Si, señor! Not everyday does the bull lose!???’
