Waiter: How did you find the steak sir?
Customer: Oh, I just moved the potato and there it was!
To find = (verb) in the context of this joke ‘to find’ means to have an opinion on something. It can also mean to discover the location of something.
Steak = (noun) a thick, flat piece of meat used for grilling
Why is it funny?
A polite way of asking someone’s opinion of something is to say, “How did you find the…?” which is how the waiter has asked the customer about his steak.
The customer has misinterpreted the question as, “how were you able to discover the steak” and has given his opinion accordingly.
Must have been a small steak!!
