The Canadian Supermarket Clerk (joke)

A man in the produce section of a supermarket asked the clerk if he could purchase just a half a head of lettuce. The clerk said they only sold lettuce by the head, but the man insisted that he ask his manager about it. Walking into the stock room, the clerk said to his manager, “Some asshole wants to buy a half a head of lettuce.” As he finished his sentence, he realized the man was standing right behind him, so he added, “and this gentleman kindly offered to buy the other half.” The manager approved the deal and the man took his half a head of lettuce and left. The manager told the clerk, “I liked the way you handled that situation. Where are you from?” “Canada, sir,” replied the clerk. “Really? I hear that’s a great place. Why did you leave there to move here?” he asked. The clerk replied, “Oh, there’s nothing in Canada but whores and hockey players!” “Oh, really?” said the manager. “I’ll have you know my wife is from Canada!” The boy replied, “No kidding! What position does she play?”
