The maitre d'hotel at the Ritz was interviewing waiters for an important society banquet to be held in the hotel that night. There were very few applicants for the jobs and time was running short. One applicant named Angelo, when asked where he had previously worked as a waiter, gave Harry's Hash House as a reference. The maitre d' reluctantly engaged Angelo, with a word of warning to mind his manners, for this is the Ritz.
During the banquet, after serving the turtle soup, Angelo noticed that the bosom of an attractive young debutante had fallen out of her low-cut gown into her plate of soup. Quick as a flash, Angelo jumped forward, seized the lady's bosom and, after drying it with a table napkin, slipped it back into her gown.
As he was returning to the kitchen to serve the next course, the maitre d' seized him by the arm and furiously denounced him as a clumsy oaf.
"But what was I to do?" Angelo cried. "I couldn't very well just leave it out there lying in the soup."
"Well of course not!" the maitre d' said, stiffening noticeably. "But when an incident such as that occurs at the Ritz, one uses a warmed serving spoon!"
