The Chinese Restaurant

In the Chinese restaurant,
You can have just what you want.
Duck or chicken, tofu, beef,
All you need's a set of teeth.
Real or false, it doesn't matter,
If you can bite through that thin batter
To masticate the rubbery squid,
Just like that old woman did.
The one whose dentures, so I'm told,
Are heading for the finger bowl.

A sign outside an Austin bbq shack: "Ya don't need teeth to eat our beef!"
