“Waitress: Do you have any questions about the menu? Diner: What kind of font is this?”

A typical restaurant question can have a jocular answer:

Waitress: Do you have any questions about the menu?
Diner: Yes. What kind of font is this?


The joke was popularized by American actor Rainn Wilson in a tweet on May 13, 2009.
