"Truth is one; the sages just speak of it in different ways."
Ha, it took me a second. I don't know why I do this, but sometimes when I am reading certain things I will skip over the parts that my mind tells me aren't important to the general information. In this case, I skipped the restaurant name the first time around, which isn't important to the story, but is definitely important with regard to the joke.
Gene, the photo of the restaurant owner looks a bit like you in your post-mugging photos.
Non fare lo stronzo, Andy: I look better than that even mugged.
