The Pianist Teddy Wilson tells a story about the great Louis Armstrong or Satch as he was called. Seems Satch loved hamburgers. He would go into the same restaurant each day and order a hamburger. The waitress knew he loved hamburgers. One day they ran out of hamburgers and the waitress scratched it off the menu. When Satch came in for lunch, the waitress told him that she just scratched what he liked best. He said, "That's all right baby. Wash your hands and bring me a hamburger."
