Cartoon of the day

I like cartoons about two-bit diners, the characters who habitate the places  - - -  the short-order cooks, years ago were usually ex-army cooks with tattoos, a cigarette dangling out of their mouth and had the reputation of being short-fused and tempermental, they made you feel like you were interrupting them by giving them the order - - -  I remember one time around the 60,s in a Little Tavern hamburger joint in Washington D.C., about 1:30 AM in the morning I stumbled in the joint and instead of the expected, " Hello,What would you like ?, or may I help you - - " - - -  " or something like that, instead, he mumbles with a growl  - - -   "What d'ya want? "
