Funniest thing to happen to you in a restaurant

What was the funniest incident you ever had in a restaurant?
 
For me, it was in a (I think defunct, at least in New York City) Dosanko Larmen (Japanese noodle chain) in New York. I was rather fond of their seasonal (summer) hiyashi larmen; sort of a cross between cold noodles and a chef's salad, and, it being summer and lunchtime, I convinced a friend I was with to accompany me. Now, for probably cultural reasons, the waitstaff generally took a long time to serve water, and I didn't drink sugared drinks, cola, or hot beverages, so water was my only reasonable choice. I told my friend, "It's a great restaurant, but you could die before they'd serve you a drink of water."
 
Now, one thing I did not mention is that another dressing served with the hiyashi larmen is hot mustard, I typically put both dressings on, then mix well. Unfortunately, on that day, I did not mix well enough, and got almost all the hot mustard in a single bite.
 
I started coughing, choking, and sputtering. As this was happening, a waitress, carrying two glasses of water, walks by, looks at me, and keeps walking. As best I could, through the coughing, choking and sputtering (and much to the combined amusement and relief of my friend) said, "You see? I told you!"

    In the early 1980 or 81, living on the beach in LA, and with LITTLE or NO regard for the norm, I double dated with my neighbor next door, a Doc at UCLA, his girlfriend fixed me up with a very attractive blind date with a terrific sense of humor, we went to the only true Egyptian restaurant in West LA at the time, I was feeling no pain, after a few MORE drinks I went into the men's, took a roll of toilet paper and wrapped from the top of my head, with a eye slit, to as far down my body as I could, about my waist, then ran out and ran all over the restaurant yelling" I AM FEELING VERY EGYPTIAN", the entire place cracked up, even the managers, after I un mummyfied myself and sat down the place applauded, my table was sent many drinks, shook many hands, people wanted to know who I was, typical LA, And my date ended happily ever after! True story! Then there was the time in Oxnard.....

    This didn't happen to me personally but since it has almost happened to me personally I have no problem believing it. Someone told a story(probably on here) about an older waitress in a Waffle house I think getting a sneezing fit and in the process her dentures flew out of her mouth and onto someone's table.
