Gumbolaya

Me: “May I have a cup of corn chowder with that?”
Waitress: “We don’t have the chowder today. We have Chili and Gumbolaya.”
Me: “Gumbo-laya? Did you mean Gumbo or Jambalaya?”
Waitress: “Yes, Gumbolaya.” [Lizz stares across the table at me, wide-eyed]
Me: “OK, I’ll try some, if only to see what it is.”
[Waitress brings a cup of what is clearly just gumbo.]
Waitress: “How’s that Gumbolaya tasting?”
Me: “A lot like gumbo.”

  1. [quote comment=”426837″]So, you’re saying that the waitress was a laya?[/quote]
    …and that you decided to take a Gumbo on it, anyway? ๐Ÿ™„

  2. I believe that the Gumbolaya is actually a Caribbean dance only ever done in Creole soup kitchens at midnight on All Souls Dayโ€ฆalthough I could be wrong.

    Personally Iโ€™ve always wanted to invent a new Latin dance. I once tried to combine the Lambada and the Tango to produce something new and sexy but nobody liked its name, โ€œEl Lumbagoโ€ (Ay Caramba!).

  3. Gumbo… Sounds like a movie starring Gumby about a clay warrior going back to rescue his friends from the Play-doh prison cup… ๐Ÿ™„

  4. RIGHT ON! Thanks, BWD, for giving me the idea to log in before posting to make my avatar show up. I didn’t have too before, tho… Dave, does this little revelation help you with the problem you were figuring out?

  5. Gumbolaya is actually the Cajun culinary creation of the great eccentric Hawaiian chef,
    HelloIwannalaya…

  6. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ Do you live in a culinary hell hole, Dave??? I mean….Gumbolaya? WTF is that shit. The chef in me wants to come up there and slap the crap outta that waitress! ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

  7. Peter, Paul, and waitress sing their new song, Gumbolaya

  15. Dave,
    You must have a huge set of brass balls or be incredibly stupid (which I highly doubt) to give that a shot. I think that I would have verbally abuse the waitress a hell of a lot more and walked out. Kudos to you my brother
