Youth Salesmanship

Two Liberal girls and one Conservative boy sent on a mission.

Two negatives can’t match that of a positive, but we can always HOPE for a CHANGE in the RIGHT direction!!!

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 Mary 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, Mary" 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 selling?"

"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 Liberal District and set up on a 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 crap!"

Then I Would say, "It is dog crap. Wanna’ buy a toothbrush?"

"I used the Obama approach of giving you something extremely crappy for free,

and then making you pay to get the taste out of your mouth."
