    well I can see why this isn't in the "good joke" thread.

    Certainly this Tim Vine reject was worthy of its own thread.

    It's says "Category Humour" but I'm not convinced. I think a mod should move it.

    Surely you'd have to be a waiter to take hors d'oeuvres? Not that there are many waiters in the army, or many occasions for cooks to make hors d'oeuvres. Perhaps a steward in an officers' mess?

    the setup doesn't really work, is what I am saying, and the payoff is a pun that is pretty poor without being bad enough to be enjoyable for its badness.

    Maybe it would be funnier if it were "I used to be a cook in the French Foreign Legion..." Because that would at least explain the accent.

    Most of the FFL aren't French, there's a clue in the name.
