A man walked into a family owned store. He asked the clerk if the store carried any asparagus. The clerk replied no. The next day the same man walked in and asked the same clerk if the store carried any asparagus. The clerk again replied, no. The next day, once again, the man walked in and asked the same clerk if the store carried asparagus. The clerk replied, "If you ask that again I'll staple your lips together." Knowing the clerk was serious, the man left. The next day the man came in and asked a question. The clerk replied, no. The man, once again, asked, "Does this store carry asparagus?" What did the man ask (where the clerk responded no) that made him brave enough to ask about asparagus?

I haven't looked at the answer.... was it "Do you have a stapler?" or something like that? That's what I think!

that was a total rip off of a joke where a duck asked for something.

it doesn't matter if it was a rip off from somewhere or own, it made me smile; and that's what matters. Good teaser.

It was from a winterfresh commercial I belive. I thought it was funny the first time I heard it.......but not when somebody tried to make a brain teaser out of it.

Excuse you people, especially cowcow (as you stated cowcow it is from a joke where a duck goes into a bar and asks for grapes. If a man goes into a store and asks for asparagus how is that a rip off?) And it wasn't supposed to be funny, it's a perfectly logical answer.

It made me laugh and it was fun asking myself what would this same man who asked for asparagus would asked?

What's with making Braingles out of jokes? The other day it was the vase\wager joke modified from Desperado and now this?

Geez people if you don't have any good comments don't add any. I mean what are you people, desperately in need of a life?

Once again, tons of negative comments but a high "fun" rating. Why is it that the people with nothing good to say always seem to be the ones to talk the most? ...Anyway, I liked it. Unfortunately I heard it before, too, but I still think it makes a cute teaser.

i havent heard it so at least it made me smile! Rather than critisising other peoples teasers, why dont you try to think one up yourself?

Daxter: I noticed you only have one teaser (and not that I would ever put it down in the comments, but under the provokation of you and your negative attitude and the fact I'm in a bad mood that one teaser SUCKS!

I thought the question was "Are you the same clerk that was working here yesterday?"

heard it before (or, at least, something similar)

a good teaser!

but if you want to be picky, there are thousands of other possible questions, such as "are you mobile?" if the clerk answers no, it means she will be unable to move and attack him with a stapler.
I'm just being intentionally pathetic, but just being alert of other possibilities
