There was a boy who worked in the produce section of a market. A man
came in and asked to buy half a head of lettuce. The boy told him that
they only sold whole heads of lettuce, but the man replied that he did
not need a whole head, only a half.
The boy explained that he would have to ask the manager and so he
walked into the back room and said, "There is some jerk out there who
wants to buy only a half a head of lettuce."
As he finished saying this, he turned around to find the man standing
right behind him, so he quickly added, "and this gentleman wants to
buy the other half".
The manager okayed the request and the man went on his way. Later on
the manager said to the boy, "You almost got yourself in a lot of
trouble earlier, but I must say I was impressed with the way you got
out of it. You think on your feet and we like that around here. Where
are you from son?"
The boy replied, "Minnesota sir".
"Oh, really? Why did you leave Minnesota" asked the manager.
The boy replied, "They're all just whores and hockey players up there."
"My wife is from Minnesota!"
The boy replied, "Really! What team did she play for?"
