“LETT” is the clue.


#3

Yup. That’s when I said “hey, wait a minute…”


#4

This could be a Hitchcock film. Like the 39 Steps.


#5

Onion-choosing imperative is the only sane possibility. Combining mustard and lettuce is just too horrible to fathom.


#6

Mustard must not come in contact with lettuce. Bad things could happen.


#7

I like Tom but he needn’t pick an onion for me.


#8

Groan! That is terrible.


#9

Or his butt.

And those were his dying words…

especially if he’s gonna get jalapeño face about it

When I was in college my roommate got a burger takeout that arrived without an actual burger patty. He stared at the two sandwich halves for a good, long time before looking up with a puzzled, hurt expression and asking, “what’s the message?”


#14

they thought he was vegan? Hindu?


#16

Anyone who has ever had a food prep job knows what this is all about!


#17

A brief hunt in a dictionary tells me that “lett” is an old-fashioned term for someone of Latvian descent. Also, are we sure that says Onion? Looks like it says Union to me… I guess an expatriot working at that sandwich bar is planning a picket line somewhere…?
