    This is another yes-or-no riddle.

    A man was in a diner, and he ordererd Albatraz soup.

    After 2 or 3 sips, he quietly walked out the door and hanged himself.

    Why?

    no. You are supposed to ask yes or no questions, and then i answer them. try to find out how many people are in the story.

    not a pun,but you could say that alcatraz island and the setting of the backstory are related in some way.

    Are you sure it's an albatross?

    Since the species is listed as threatened, if not endangered, I doubt that you would find it on the menu in a diner.
