Discount for bugs on food

Out-of-work songstress Julie Andrews tried the put-bugs-on-restaurant-food-and-get-a-free-meal move in the movie Victor/Victoria.

In Dubai, it will only get you a 25 per cent discount.

Seven people celebrating a birthday at a Dubai diner received a 25 per cent discount on their bill after they found four insects crawling around their meals.

One of the disgruntled customers said,

"We were surprised when the receipt said ‘bug on food’ as a reason for the discount. I think they were trying to be funny."

An official at the restaurant said,

"… the guys thought being friendly and having a joke about the environment would relax the diners because it was a birthday, but unfortunately it didn’t."

People aren’t as funny as they think they are. Especially me.
