Quick Thinking

	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?"
