How to sell a toothbrush



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 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 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 poop!"

Then I would say, "It IS dog poop. Wanna buy a toothbrush?"

"I used the government's strategy of giving you something sh*tty for free, and
then making you pay to get that taste out of your mouth." Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Very Happy
