The Salesman

Post by oops on January 30th 2009, 7:10 am

A salesman was traveling through the countryside, selling
insect repellent. He came to a farmhouse and tried his pitch
on the farmer. "Sir, my bug spray is so good you will never
be bitten again, I guarantee it."

The farmer was dubious. "Young man, I'll make you a propo-
sition. I'll tie you out in my cornfield buck naked, covered
with that bug spray. If there is not a single bite on you
come morning, I'll buy a whole case from you."

The salesman was delighted. They went to the field and he
stripped. The farmer sprayed him thoroughly with the bug
spray and tied him to a stake. Back to the house went the
farmer.

The next morning, the farmer and his family trooped out to
the corn field. Sure enough, the salesman was there, hanging
in his bonds, not a single bite on him. Yet he was a total
wreck! Pale, ghastly, haggard, and drawn, but not one bite
on him.

The farmer was perplexed. "Son," he said, "Now, you don't
have a bite on you but you look like hell! What the devil
happened?"

The salesman looked up through bloodshot eyes and croaked,
"For crying out loud, Mister, doesn't that calf have a
Mother!" Laughing
