      Little Johnny Sells Toothbrushes.

      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.

      "$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 corner in town," said Little Johnny, "I set up a Chip & Dip stand, I 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 ............ method of giving you something crappy, but looks good, for free, and then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth."
      The teacher was speechless. . . .QUOTE=Shiva_TD

      Did you know that the word "race car" spelled backward still spells "race car"?

      Did you know that "eat" is the only word that if you take the first letter and move it to the last, it spells its past tense "ate"?

      And have you noticed that if you rearrange the letters in "illegal immigrants" and add just a few more letters, it spells out: Go home you (*)(*)(*)(*)ing free-loading, benefit-grabbing, kid-producing, violent, non-English speaking ********s, and take those other (*)(*)(*)(*)ing hairy-faced, sandal-wearing, bomb-making, goat-(*)(*)(*)(*)ing, raggedy-ass bastards with you"?

      Does it matter where you live?

      Well, if you could just post the country, it would help others to understand and relate your cultural perspective.

      Please consider at least listing your country. I think you're American, based on your sig. Did I guess right?
