I got a Blockbuster card the other day, and even though I knew it was a nationwide card, I felt like breaking the silence. I never knew my simple question would result in a funny reply.

Me: So, this card works at any location right?
Blockbuster: Yeah, it's nationwide. It will work in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Washington... [pauses] State, [longer pause] umm, I think Canada. [pauses, smiles because he thinks he is the first to make the joke] Because you know Canada is the 51st state anyway. Well, 52nd. I think Puerto Rico would be a state first.
