Butchered The Joke: A Curious Interview

PLUG:  Are you a butcher?

BUTCHER:  Yes.

PLUG:  What kind of schooling do you need to be a butcher?

BUTCHER:  The grocery store teaches us.

PLUG:  Do you enjoy it?

BUTCHER:  Yes.

PLUG:  What's your favorite animal to hack up?

BUTCHER:  We don't hack anything anymore. Those days are over with. We've got a warehouse now that does everything. The only thing I cut is [what's in the refrigerated case] and it's mostly boneless. From time to time we'll get lamb and I'll cut that, but it's seldom.

PLUG:  Do you ever make jokes about being a butcher? For example,"Stop treating me like a piece of meat!"

BUTCHER:  No.

PLUG:  What about, "What am I, chopped liver?"

BUTCHER:  No.

PLUG:  Never?

BUTCHER:  No.

PLUG:  So meat puns weren't covered during butcher class? You should consider making some up. They're fun.

BUTCHER:  You already gave me two, so I'll start with those.

PLUG:  You can steak your life on it. Did see what I did there?

BUTCHER:  I did. And the customers are going to think I'm crazy.
