Heard: What, Exactly, Goes into a Taco?

Scene: Two staffers enjoying a relaxed lunch at the bar at a local dining establishment on the House side during Recess. Intern, red badge of courage prominently displayed, approaches bar and sits down. Staffers quiet down to listen in and see if he says anything stupid...

Intern: "I would like one taco with chicken and one taco with beef to go please."

Bartender: "Okay. Anything else?"

Intern: "Yes, Do you have chips to go?"

Bartender: "Yes, we can give you chips and salsa to go."

Intern (while conducting serious business on his blackberry): "Okay does that come with Salsa?

Bartender (scowling): "Yes."

Intern: "Okay, what do you put in your tacos?"

Bar Man (A little annoyed at this point): "It is a taco buddy. Lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and whatever meat you order. Anything else?"

Intern: (still conducting BBerry business) "Nope, thanks."

Something tells me it isn't just staffers that get pissed about the summer intern crowd.
