Yesterday I answered a knock on the door, 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!' I said. 'I haven't got any money!', 'I'm broke!' and proceeded to close the door.

Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed 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 my hallway carpet.

'If this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this horse manure from your carpet, Sir, I will personally eat the remainder.'

I stepped back and said, 'Well I hope you've got a [censored] good appetite, because they cut off my electricity this morning. What part of 'broke' do you not understand?'

Haha I remember this from a few years ago :P But you told it wrong :P Well, from the one I heard anyway. Lose the last line, or the punch line loses its effect :P

Funny anyway tho :P


Note to self: Stop using :P so often.

I hate that sort of guy's.

But luckaly they dont come here at your house, they just call people between 17.00 and 21.00.
Thats irritating.

But what you can do with the foot in the door, slam it shut Hard, then they go away, or get a small window/looker like in the hotels in the usa (and in appartments), but dont do it backwards like someone i saw on the TV did.

That's just plain hilarious. Too bad it will never happen in America.

I remember a salesmen came to our door at the old house a few years ago. We lived in an older neighborhood, with many trees, so naturally there was a lot of mossy growth on a lot of the concrete.
He attempted to sell my mom some cleaner that would clean the moss from the front porch.
She had him demonstrate the "magical, miracle cleaner that will clean ANY stain in and around your house" He sprayed some on the moss, and scrubbed it, but it wouldn't come off. He was so embarrassed :D

This is why you should never trust hype 100% of the time.
