Candian patent No.1

In 1869, the Canadian patent No. 1 was issued to W. Hamilton. According to the Canadian Intellectual Property Office, the first Canadian patent, issued before the present number series, "was granted in 1791 by the Governor General in Council to Angus MacDonnel, a Scottish soldier garrisoned at Quebec City, and to Samuel Hopkins, a Vermonter, for processes to make potash and soap from wood ash." Hopkins also was granted the first U.S. patent by George Washington, dated 31 July 1790 for an improvement "in the making Pot ash and Pearl ash by a new Apparatus and Process."

In what aisle could I find the Polish...

"In what aisle could I find the Polish sausage?" a guy asks.
The clerk looks at him and says, "Are you Polish?"
The guy (clearly offended) says, "Well, yes I am. But let me ask you something. If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian? Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German? Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish? Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican? If I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?"
The clerk says, "Well, no, I probably wouldn't!"
With deep self-righteous indignation, the guy says, "Well then, why did you ask me if I'm Polish because I asked for Polish sausage?"
The clerk replied, "Because you're in Home Depot."
