At the outpatient surgery center where I work, the anesthesiologist often chatted with patients before their operations to help them relax.  One day he thought he recognized a woman as a co-worker at the VA hospital where he had trained.

When the patient confirmed that his hunch was correct, he said, "So, tell me, is the food still as bad there as it used to be?"

"Well, I suppose," she replied, "I'm still cooking it."
