A guy goes to a fancy French restaurant. He's feeling adventurous, so he decides to order the squid. He is told that they are kept alive in a small aquarium in the restaurant, so that they are really fresh. As he's ordered squid, he can choose which squid he would like to eat!

He goes over to the aquarium and sees the squid swimming around. There's one squid that looks really sick - it's gone a strange shade of green, and even has strange fuzz growing around it's mouth. The guy is kind of grossed out, but he thinks - this poor squid - it looks really miserable, and no-one's going to choose it! Maybe I should put it out of its misery. So he asks the head chef - Gervaise - to cook up the little runt. Gervaise is surprised, but dips his hand in and grabs the squid.

Gervaise takes it into the kitchen, but as he's preparing to bring his cleaver down on the squid, it just looks so pathetic - twitching around. He can't do it. But still, the customer needs his squid! So he asks his Austrian kitchen assistant - Hans - to do the deed for him.

But Hans can't do it either! The squid is just so pathetic and helpless.

Which just goes to show...

Hans that do dishes can be as soft as Gervaise with vile, green, hairy-lipped squid.

This is a pun on an old advert for Fairy washing up liquid which said "Hands that do dishes can be as soft as your face, with mild, green Fairy liquid"

Click 'show all' comments - I put up an explanation. It's only funny if you've seen the advert it's a pun of.
