C’est Ironique Sign of the Weeque
Did you name your restaurant yourself?
Yes! My daughter thought of the name.
Oh — so you didn’t name it yourself.
Yes I did! It’s called “Yourself.”
You mean it’s named after me?
No, but that would be a good idea for my next restaurant’s name: “After Me.”
So you’re going to name another restaurant “Me,” and then a third one, after that, after me?
No, not “After That,” just “After Me.”
Oh, sorry — I misunderstood. So you’re going to name your second restaurant after yourself?
Of course the second one will be named after “Yourself.” I’ve already named my first restaurant!
Oh — so what’s it called?
