“Please email me ASAP if you have special dietary considerations.”

And so the email went out to the cyber world and our staffer waited.

It wasn't long before the jokes started. Sure, joking about food allergies and such isn't the most kosher, given their seriousness (and scariness), but, well, we laughed. And that's all that matters in this column, right?

One of our favorite, silly allergy jokes to top off the local list:

“Did you hear about the Frenchman who could only count to seven?”

Poor soul being asked the question: No, why couldn't he count higher?

“Oh, well, young son, he had a huit allergy!”

Har. Har. Har. Get it? Huit? French for eight? Also sounds like “wheat?”

We knew we didn't have to spell it out for you...

I'm glad they mentioned "given their seriousness (and scariness)"....and the fact that people are starting to give it more attention from the get-go at these functions is great.
