The 1/2 thing was also from a Molson Golden beer commercial in the 80’s. Waiter goes to the bar and says “some nut wants 1/2 a bottle of Golden”. The man asking is behind him and the waiter then says “and this gentleman would like the other 1/2.” Smooth as Golden.A man in a Florida supermarket asks if he can buy half a head of lettuce. The very young produce assistant tells him that they sell only whole heads of lettuce. The man persists and asks to see the manager. The boy says he'll ask his manager about it.
Walking into the back room, the boy says to his manager - Some idiot wants to buy 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 has kindly offered to buy the other half.
The manager approved the deal and the man went on his way.
Later the manager 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?
Why did you leave Canada?
Sir, there's nothing but whores and hockey players up there.
Really? My wife is from Canada.
No kidding? Who'd she play for?
