You need a new Toothbrush:
TOOTHBRUSHES FOR SALE
The kids filed into class Monday morning. They were all very excited.Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk onsalesmanship.
Little Sally led off. "I sold Girl Scout cookies and I made $30" she saidproudly, "My sales approach was to appeal to the customer's civil spirit andI credit that approach for my obvious success."
"Very good", said the teacher.
Little Debbie was next. "I sold magazines" she said, "I made $45 and Iexplained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events."
"Very good, Debbie", 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 ofcash on the teacher's desk. "$2,467", he said.
"$2,467!" cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?"
Toothbrushes", said LittleJohnny. "Toothbrushes", echoed the teacher,
"How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?"
"I found the busiest corner intown", said Little Johnny, "I set up aDip&Chip stand and I gave everybody who walked by a free sample."They all said the same thing, "Hey, this tastes like dogpoop!" Then Iwould say, "It is dog poop. Wanna buy a toothbrush?I used the PresidentObama method of giving you some crap, dressing it up so it looks good,telling you it's free and then making you pay to get the bad taste out ofyour mouth."
Little Johnny got five stars for his assignment. Bless his heart.
