Little Johnny

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 to the class.


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.”Little Johnny


“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.”


“That’s excellent, 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?”


“Well……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!”


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


“I used the ” Obama 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.”

  1. Black Eye
    Little Johnny’s teacher noticed that he was sporting a black eye. She asked him what happened, and he replied, “Ma’am, you remember I told you how I sleep on the floor next to my parent’s bed? Well, last night, my dad asked me if I was still awake, I said yes and then he punched me in the face.”

    “Ok, Johnny”, the teacher said, trying to help, ” the next time your dad asks you if you’re still awake, don’t answer, just lay still and pretend to be asleep.”

    All went well, until a few weeks later, Little Johnny came to class with another black eye. The teacher asked him why he didn’t follow her advice.

    Johnny explained, “Ma’am, I tried to, when dad asked me if I was awake, I kept quiet and lay really still, and pretended to be asleep, but then Dad said ‘I’m coming’, and Mom said ‘I’m coming too’, and I didn’t want them to go anywhere without me, so I shouted, ‘Let me just put on my slippers, I’m coming too’ and that’s when I got punched in the face.”
