JOKE OF THE MONTH:

DOOR TO DOOR SALESMAN

A vacuum cleaner salesman knocked on a door in a Senior community. It was opened by an old lady in a bathrobe.

“Go away,” said the old lady. “I haven’t got any money! I’m flat broke!” 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, my dear lady!” he said. “Not until you have at least seen my amazing demonstration.”

And with that, he emptied a bucket of horse manure onto her hallway carpet. “If this wonderful Kirby vacuum cleaner doesn’t remove all traces of this horse manure from your carpet, madam, I will personally eat the remainder of it.”

The old Lady stepped back and said, “Well, I sure hope you’ve got a good appetite sonny because they cut off my electricity this morning.”
