Anything you ask for:

Sitting in a small restaurant, a client asked the proprietor for the menu. "We don't need a menu here," said the proprietor, "We can serve anything you ask for."
"What, anything?" asked the client.
"Yes, anything at all." was the reply.
"In that case, I would like some camel's tail soup."
"Very well, sir, but it will take a little while, and you will have to wait a while for it."
"That's OK," said the client. He sat waiting for an hour or so, then a waiter brought a tureen of fragrant soup. He ate the lot, and was thoroughly delighted.
He called for the proprietor. "I really enjoyed that," he said, "But surely it was not really camel's tail soup."
Rejoined the proprietor, "It certainly was. Tell you what, come with me."
The client was led to the back of the restaurant, where a Porsche was parked, and was motioned into it. They drove about a hundred miles into the countryside, to an enormous farm. There the client was amazed to see every possible kind of exotic plant, animal and bird.
The restaurant proprietor pointed to a compound in which there were two camels, of which one had only a stump of a tail, bandaged, with a trace of blood.
"That's where your soup came from," he announced.
The client was absolutely flummoxed. "That is remarkable,"he gasped, "but there must sometimes be demands you can't satisfy."
"No," replied the proprietor, "we have never been caught out... Wait, no, we were once... when a customer asked for crocodile balls on toast. .........We were clean out of bread."
