A little old lady answered a knock on the door one day,
only to be confronted by a well-dressed young man
carrying a vacuum cleaner.
Good morning, said the young man ;
If I could take a couple of minutes of your time, I would
like to demonstrate the very latest in high powered vacuum cleaners .
Go away!’ said the old lady ; I’m broke and haven’t got any money !
and she proceeded to close the door.
Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed
it wide open. Don’t be too hasty! he said ;
Not until you have at least seen my demonstration. And with that, he emptied
a bucket of horse manure onto her hallway carpet. If this vacuum cleaner does
not remove all traces of this horse manure from your carpet, Madam,
I will personally eat the remainder.’
The old lady stepped back and said, Well let me get you a fork,
cause they cut off my electricity this morning !!
