Do they accept USD in Canada? I mean as currency in shops?

No idea. Honestly my idea started off as a racist (countryist?) joke and then I couldn't finish it.

Okay, my turn!

 

Jimmy's mom asks him to buy some milk from the store. She gives him $5 and he makes his way to the store. Once inside, he grabs a large bag of milk from the refridgerated foods section. He brings it to the cash register and finds that the bag costs $6.24. Jimmy searches his pockets for extra cash but is unable to find any. He then searches the ground for spare change, but all to no avail. Desperately, he begs others around him for extra change, but they refuse. Running out of options he asks the cashier if he can pay them back later, and they reply with an unsurprising 'no'. Fearful of what his mother would say if he were to come home empty-handed, Jimmy contemplates the situation for a while. He suddenly slaps his forehead for his stupidity, and eventually he comes out of the store with milk. How did he manage to get milk?

 

The BAG Costs $6.24, so he instead got a CARTON of milk. I i'm right, then i pass.

I would think he just got a smaller bag.

 

And they sell milk in bags in parts of Canada (I believe Eastern parts?).

Did the bag change in any way?

He buys a small bag of milk instead of a large one?

 

 

Correct! His mother didn't say he had to buy a large bag of milk, so Jimmy just bought a smaller bag for less money.

 

I'm extremely sorry for the delay, but I was on vacation for 2 weeks and didn't have internet access.

Two workers were busy working on a roof one day. Suddenly, they both lose balance and fall down the chimney. When they get up, they both look at each other. Worker 1's face was covered in soot and grime, while Worker 2's face was perfectly clean. Yet Worker 2 cleaned his face off, while Worker 1 didn't bother to. Explain Why.

Worker 1 didn't realise his face was dirty, because he didn't see dirt on worker 2's face. On the other hand, when worker 2 saw the dirt on the face of worker one, he figured that his face should have dirt on it too, because they both fell down the same chimney. They both had to conclude from the other persons face, because the had no mirror.

Yay i got it :)

 

here's an oldy:

 

A man is sententenced to death because he committed a murder. He can choose to go into one of three rooms:

 

room 1: a room full of raging fires

room 2: a room filled with assasins with loaded guns

room 3: full of lions that haven't eaten in three years.

 

Question: which room is safest for him?

 

 

 

guess away!

Room 3. If the lions haven't eaten in three years, then they are probably dead. Or they haven't eaten in 3 years because they are dead.

A man pushes his car down a street towards a hotel, and when he stopped there, he realised he had become bankrupt

What had happened?

I'll go:

 

Matthew swung an axe and hit his friend Tommy's neck, but Tommy was not decapitated or seriously injured. How is that so?

Was the axe a toy axe or was Tommy a toy?

He didn't swing the axe AT Tommy. Maybe he swung it at a log, but a chip of wood flung up and hit Tommy in the neck?
