The children returned to class on Monday morning. They were very excited. Their weekend assignment was to sell something and then give a talk on productive sales management.
Little Sally led off, “I sold girl scout cookies and 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 like, “I sold magazines,” she said, “I made $45 and told everyone the magazines would keep them up on current events.”
“Very well, Jenny,” the teacher said.
Finally, it was Little Johnny’s turn. The teacher held her breath.
Little Johnny went to the front of the classroom and put a box full of money on the teacher’s desk. “$2,467,” he said.
“$2,467! cried the teacher, “What did you sell?”
“Toothbrushes,” Little Johnny said.
“Toothbrushes,” the teacher repeated, “how could you possibly sell enough toothbrushes to make that much money?”
“I found the busiest corner of town,” Little Johnny said. “I set up a Dip & Chip booth and gave everybody who walked by a free sample.”
They all said the same thing, “Hey, that tastes like dog crap!”
Then I would say, “It’s true. Do you want to buy a toothbrush?
I used the government’s approach of giving you crap for free and then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth.”
Hope this joke will make you smile! Have a nice day!
