Johnny's School Project

The kids filed into class Monday morning.  They were all very excited.  Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on 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 civic spirit and I 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 I explained 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 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 toothbrushes to make that much money?

"I found the busiest corner in town," said Little Johnny.  "I set up a Dip & Chip stand and I gave everybody who walked by a free sample."  They all said the same thing, "Hey, this tastes like dog poop."  

I would say, "It is dog poop.  Wanna buy a toothbrush?”  

I used the Nancy Pelosi 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 of your mouth. Little Johnny got five stars for his assignment. 

Thanks Jim! 


  1. Hey Odie, I noticed we visit some of the same blogs. I saw your comment about Mitt (Mitt can KMA) over at 90 miles...

    Well, I feel the same way and Pelosi can also KMA - not on the right, not on the left, but in the groove. Haha

    Have a great day.

  2. Democrat, Socialist, Progressive, Commies, their policies are just polished turds. They and their ilk (MSM) are the polishers. It is always the same schtick. They shine them up, put a lil lipstick and glitter on one end, tell everyone that it is good, and that it can be picked up by the clean end.


  3. You and I agree on Pelosi. Living in California isn't what it once was.

    Have a fabulous day, Odie. 😎

  4. Edward, Most of the blogs I visit are on my sidebar for your amusement.

  5. Gleason, but what do you really think?

  6. Sandee, California is not the same as when I was growing up. We need to get Travis Allen to head the Cal GOP.

  7. That Botox must make the inside of your mouth burn.


Put it here ... I can't wait to read it. I have the Captcha turned OFF but blogger insists it be there. You should be able to bypass it.
