So I found a small tree in a clam and when the waiter asked if everything was okay I said, “There’s a small tree in my clam” and the waiter was like, “Oh. Why?” As if I had put it there.
So he got the cook and she was like, “Oh, that’s his…what’s the word? His hair“. And that was not really comforting but English was not her first language so I googled “What’s in my clam” and turns out it’s his beard. Apparently “bearded clam” is not just a euphemism for a lady garden. So then I asked the waiter if we were supposed to eat the bearded clam and he was like, “I wouldn’t” and then pointed out that it was not a clam at all and was a mussel so now I’m even more confused.
