A popular food joke has a man tell a waitress that he wants a “quickie.” She slaps him. Another diner tells the man, “I think that’s pronounced ‘quiche.’”
The joke has been cited in print since at least 1996-97. In some versions, the man ordering the “quickie” is Bill Clinton or George W. Bush.

Have you ever been in a restaraunt with a really good looking woman who thought “quiche” was pronounced the same as “quickie?”

This guy goes into a restaurant and looks over the menu. After a few minutes, the waitress comes to the table and asks the guy what he’d like. The guy says, “I’d like a quickie”. The waitress flushes and says, “That’s not funny, sir. Now, what would you like to order?” The guy says, “I’d really like a quickie”. The waitress slaps him hard and storms off angrily.
Another customer, overhearing the conversation, leans over and says to the guy, “Um, I think that it’s pronounced ‘quiche’!”

Bill Clinton and Al Gore go into a local diner for lunch. As they read the menu the waitress comes over and asks Clinton, “You ready to order?”
Clinton replies, “Yes, I’d like a quickie.”
“A quickie?!” the waitress replies. “Sir, given the current situation of your personal life I don’t think that is a good idea. I’ll come back when you are ready to order from the menu.” She walks away.
Gore leans over to Clinton and says, “It’s pronounced Quiche.”

Let no one say I let partisanship stand in the way of humor: Bush wins the election. He and Cheney are having lunch at a dinner near the White House. Cheney orders the “Heart-Healthy” salad. Bush leans over to the waitress and says “Honey, could I have a quickie?” She’s horrified!
She says, “Mr. President, I thought your administration would bring a new era of moral rectitude to the White House. Now I see I was wrong and I’m sorry I voted for you,” and she marches off.
Cheney leans over and says “George, I think it’s pronounced ‘QUICHE.
