GROCERY STORE CLERK (to two customers): "I'm sorry sirs, but we're currently out of bagged ice."
CUSTOMER #1 (nattily if eccentrically dressed black gentleman with a fedora sorta hat): "You could just bring out a big barrel of water and let me stick my finger in it."
CLERK (looking utterly baffled): "To--to at least cool off your finger, you mean?"
CUSTOMER #1: "Naw! To make ice! 'Cause I'm just *cool* like that."
(And you know, he really might have been.)
