There was a boy who worked in the produce section of the market. One day, 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, but only a half head. The boy said he would go ask his
manager about the matter.
The boy walked into the back room and said, "there is some asshole out there
who wants to buy only a half a head of lettuce." As he was finishing saying
this he turned around to find the man standing right behind him, so he
added, "and this gentleman wants to buy the other half".
The manager okayed the deal and the man went on his way. Later the manager
called on the boy and said, "you almost got yourself in a lot of trouble
earlier, but I must say I was impressed with the way you got yourself 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." The manager was
shocked and replied "My wife is from Minnesota!!"
The boy answered, "Really! What team did she play for?"
