Trying to find & identify a comedy sketch involving a hardware store customer with nefarious intent.

A while back, I came across a comedy sketch in which a man comes into a hardware store and starts asking the clerk questions about various products in the store in a loud, rapid-fire monotone. The questions make the man sound like he's planning to kill someone in a particularly gruesome way — basically, asking about all sorts of things that would fit in scarabic's infamous AskMe answer
. I think the first question might have been "Do you sell rat poison?" The clerk can't get a word in edgewise, and becomes more and more flustered and horrified as the sketch continues.
I don't believe the sketch was American or Canadian; I want to say it was British, but my recollection may be faulty. I've only been able to dig up the "Two Ronnies" hardware store sketch and the Fry & Laurie hardware store sketch on YouTube, and it's neither of these. Does anyone out there in the hive mind know what I'm talking about?
