“‘More coffee, Hun?’—Southern waitress serving Attila”

Many Southern waitresses, according to the stereotype, address a diner with “hon” (honey). This as nothing to do with Attila the Hun, but there are jokes.

“I get called ‘Hun’ sometimes by waitresses. My reply: ‘Actually, I go by Attila’” was posted on Twitter by George Rapp on July 8, 2009. “‘More coffee, Hun?’—waitress to Attila” was posted on Twitter by Ken Jennings on February 1, 2013.

“‘What’ll it be, hun?’—southern waitress serving attila” was posted on Twitter by Myq Kaplan on September 30, 2017.

“Attila walked into a diner in Texas, put down his sword and shield on the stool next to him. The waitress asked, ‘What can I get ya, Hun?’” was posted on the newsgroup Google Groups: The Grif.net on April 20, 2018. “Attila walks into a quaint Southern diner. Waitress says, ‘What can I get you, Hun?’” was posted on Reddit—Cleanjokes on May 19, 2020.


Wikipedia: Atiila
Attila (/ˈætɪlə, əˈtɪlə/; fl. c. 406–453), frequently called Attila the Hun, was the ruler of the Huns from 434 until his death in March 453. He was also the leader of a tribal empire consisting of Huns, Ostrogoths, and Alans among others, in Central and Eastern Europe.

When waitresses, bartenders or baristas address me as ‘hun’, I feel like Attila for a microsecond..
