Minnesota Humor

One day, a man walked into the produce section of
his local supermarket and asked to buy half a head
of lettuce. The boy working in that department told him
that they only sold whole heads of lettuce. The man
was insistent that the boy ask his manager about the matter. Walking into
the back room, the boy said to his manager, "Some jerk out there wants to
buy only half a head of lettuce." As he finished his sentence, he turned to
find the man standing right behind him, so he added, "and this gentleman
wants to buy the other half." The manager approved the deal and the man went
on his way. Later the manager found the boy and said "I was impressed with
the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who
think on their feet here. Where are you from, son?" "Minnesota, sir," the
boy replied. "Well, why did you leave Minnesota," the manager asked. The
boy said, "Sir, there's nothing but whores
and hockey players up there." "Really!" said the manager. "My wife
is from Minnesota!" The boy replied, "No kidding?
What team did she play for?"
