Winedoc and his helper were walking along a street in Toronto.
Winedoc looked in one of the shop windows and saw a sign that caught his eye. The sign read, “Suits $10.00 each, Shirts $4.00 each, Trousers $6.50 per pair”.
Winedoc said to his buddy, “Look at the prices! We could buy a whole lot of dose and when we get back to St. John’s we could make a fortune. Now, when we go in you stay quiet, okay? Let me do all da talking cause if they hear our accents, they might think we’re thickos from Newfoundland and try to screw us. “I’ll put on my best accent. Right y’are Winedoc, I’ll keep me mouth shut, so I will. You do all da busines” said his helper.
They go in and Winedoc says in a posh voice, “Hello my good man. I’ll take 50 suits at $10.00 each, 100 shirts at $4.00 each, and 50 pairs of trousers at $6.50 each. I’ll back up me truck ready to load em on, so I will.” The owner of the shop said quietly, “You’re from Newfoundland, aren’t you?”
“Well yes,” said a surprised Winedoc. “What gave it away?”
The owner replied, “This is a dry-cleaners”.
