"No Tony Macaroni," he bellowed. "No bad jokes today!" This only spurred them on. "Hey, Tony, whaddaya call a fake noodle?" "Yeah, why can't you pick up seafood, Tony?" "An impasta," said Tony. "No mussels." These were old jokes. Tony preferred the unexpected ones like the time a customer came in shouting, "Broccoli! Cauliflower! I'm sorry, I've got florets." Now, that was funny! "Hey, Tony..." He'd had enough. Tony inflated one hundred balloons with the restaurant's helium cylinder, tied ribbons to them and went outside. "Suck eggs, kids," he said, then Tony floated away.
