Sales Joke of the Day (archives) Christmas Cough.

A salesman went to the doctor complaining of a sore throat and cough.

"Hmmm," said the doctor, examining him.  "Your throat is very swollen.  I wonder if it's an allergic reaction to something you've eaten.  Have you eaten anything out of the ordinary lately?"

The salesman looked sheepish.  "Well doctor, I know it was a stupid thing to do, but two days ago I ate some of our Christmas decorations."

"Ah, that explains it!" explained the doctor triumphantly.  "You've got tinselitis."

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that during the holiday season they need to get plenty of rest in order to stay healthy.  Too many late nights, too much partying and extreme changes in diet over the holidays can make you sick.  Being sick is not the way to get the next year in your sales career off to a great start.

"Oh, joy, Christmas Eve. By this time tomorrow, millions of Americans, knee-deep in tinsel and wrapping paper will utter those heartfelt words, Is this all I got?"
