At the butcher's

An old joke about the USSR

A Muscovite asks her butcher for beef and is told there is none. Then she asks for chicken. None.

Lamb? None. Pork? None. Veal? None.

The shopper leaves with nothing and the butcher turns to exclaim to his assistant, "What a terrific memory that lady has!"

From Suddenly, The American Idea at Home and Abroad by George Will.
