As authentic as they come

I was having dinner at Tiamo's on Lygon Street with my parents a few months ago, and the restaurant was (as per usually) packed to the rafters will diners waiting to grab some amazing Italian grub. My parents enjoyed their meals so much that they went up to the chef and complimented him on his culinary skills, to which he replied in a thick Italian accent, "Ah thanking you!"

As my parents went off to pay, I took a little longer trying to unwedge myself from the tiny corner that the waiters had placed us, and the same chef turned to me and said in the broadest Australian accent, "Hey mate, I love ya tattoo! Have a good one, aye!"

That made me laugh quite a lot.
