Mel Brooks’ famous Salt Joke:

A man walks into a grocery and goes to the counter. “I want a half a pound of lox. I want some cream cheese.” Then, he looks up and he stops in the middle of his sentence. What he noticed as he looked up is that all his shelves were lined with boxes of salt. Tons and tons of boxes of salt.

“All your shelves are filled with boxes of salt,” the man asks. “Do you sell a lot of salt?”

And the grocery man says, “Me, if I sell a box of salt a week it’s a miracle. I don’t sell a lot of salt. But the guy that sells me salt—boy, can he sell salt!”
