Artichokes - Three for a Dollar at the A&P

There's an old joke about a low rent hit man named Artie who accepts a one dollar contract, gets confused, and chokes three shoppers at the A&P. It's one of my husband's favorite jokes.

And regardless of how fast I hop, I'm always closed out of the fare and pointed towards a more expensive one.  Plain old bait and switch -- in my opinion.
