Cobb, Irvin S: Cobb's Bill-of-Fare. V1. 28 Nov 2009

Irvin Shrewsbury Cobb (June 23, 1876 – March 11, 1944) was an American author, humorist, and columnist who lived in New York and authored more than 60 books and 300 short stories.

Excerpt
Upon a certain gladsome occasion a certain man went into a certain restaurant in a certain large city, being imbued with the idea that he desired a certain kind of food. Expense was with him no object. The coming of the holidays had turned his thoughts backward to the care-free days of boyhood and he longed for the holidaying provender of his youth with a longing that was as wide as a river and as deep as a well.

Hi crutledge... Maybe I don`t understand turn of the century humour, but I don`t see what`s funny in the quote...
