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 minutes of
your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered
"Go away!" said the old lady. ''I'm broke and haven't got any money!'' and
she proceeded to try 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.
"Now, if this vacuum cleaner does not remove a ll traces of this horse manure
from your carpet, Madam, I will personally eat the remainder..''
The old lady stepped back and sa id:''Well let me get you a fork, cause they
cut off my electricity this morning."
