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. "Im broke and havent got any money!"
She proceeded to close the door.
Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed it wide open. "Dont 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
"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."
