Default Can't find lens

I am reviewing my copy of GURPS: Food Service and I could have sworn there was a Dishwasher lens for the Busboy template, but now I can't find it. Can anyone help?

It's in the "Dine and Dash" Pyramid article under the "What if you get caught?" section.

That explains why Panhandling is among the skill options.

I am slightly annoyed that GURPS Food Service does not seem to be a real thing.

You people are soooo funny.

Is this forum basically becoming a parody of itself?

Do you know that it didn't even occur to me that GURPS: Food Service might not exist? hehheh

Even more that Pyramid wouldn't have had a "Dine and Dash" article.

Well done both of you... and I have to admit my first though was why would a busboy require a lens at all, thank god someone else pointed out the joke :)

It does sound like something SJG might do - not just as a ridiculously nit-picking thing, but as a deliberately silly thing for deliberately silly games. Something in the IOU line, maybe. (Actually, catering for that lot probably would be a job requiring serious skill points, seeing as some of them are from outer space and some of them might try to eat you).

Thank God you said it with all the letters that this was a joke.

My Oblivious disadvantage just had me absolutely confused and having about 10 or more "Huh?" going on in my head, until reading your post... And now I feel pretty stupid.

Ok, hold on, why would Dishwasher be a lens for Busboy, as opposed to something more general, like Food Service Employee?

The rumor mill says that will be discussed in the designer notes when they are released.

Speaking of the rumor mill, I've heard Matt Riggsby is working on a supplement for low tech settings --
