A woman approached a store clerk with a bag of “artificial snow” at the counter. You add water and it creates “snow,” that feels like snow and looks like snow.
“M’am, is this real snow? I mean, for real snow?”
The clerk told her, “No, it's artificial snow, and that if they bagged real snow it would melt and be water by now.”
She just laughed and then bought the bag.

A local woman was sitting at the Station in her Red Sox hat. A man she has never seen before walks by with a Yankees hat. The usual banter ensues. The Yankee fan proceeds to say, "but I’m actually from New York. You aren’t from Boston. You’re in Alaska."
She informed him that he too was in Alaska, to which he had no response.

A guy comes in the Rock Shop holding up one of the owner’s ads that reads Free Rock and Sculpture Garden, asking where it was.
“In the back.”
The visitor comes on back, but after 30 seconds he says, "I have seen all the rocks and sculptures with prices on them but where are the free ones?”

Lots of rock-solid wind blowing these days. Keep whatever hat you have on tight and stay true to your team. Be a maverick, resist the heat. Some of our best friends are Canucks, but bruins also make for an interesting blotter.
