Today was me and my wife's anniversary so we went out for lunch and went to a movie and it was a great day. And every part of it was fun, even the movie. So I got this funny in an e-mail today and would like to share it. Everyone have a good weekend.
The kids filed back into class Monday
morning. They were very excited. Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on productive salesmanship. Little Sally led off: "I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30," she said proudly, "My sales approach was to appeal to the customer's civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success."
"Very good," said the teacher.
Little Jenny was next: "I sold magazines," she said, "I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events."
"Very good, Jenny," said the teacher..
Eventually, it was Little Johnny's turn.
The teacher held her breath ....
Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and
dumped a box full of cash on the teacher's desk. "$2,467," he said.
"$2,467!" cried the teacher, "What in the world were you
"Toothbrushes," said Little Johnny.
"Toothbrushes!" echoed the teacher, "How could you possibly
sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?"
"I found the busiest corner in town," said Little Johnny,
"I set up a Dip & Chip stand and gave everybody who walked by a free sample."
They all said the same thing, "Hey, this tastes like dog
Then I would say, "It is dog shit. Wanna buy a toothbrush?"
"I used the governmental approach of giving you something
shitty for free, and then making you pay to get the shitty taste out of your mouth."
