Half a Head of Lettuce

There was a boy who worked in the produce section of the market.
A man came in and asked to buy half a head of lettuce. The boy
told him they only sold whole heads of lettuce, but the man
replied 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's some jerk
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 prostitutes and hockey players up
there."

Really replied the manager, "My wife is from Minnesota!!"

The boy replied, "No kidding! What team did she play for?"
