Sales Joke of the Day (archives) The Doll.

A Vice President of Sales arrives back home after Bring Your Daughter to Work Day. The little girl says, "Daddy, why do you call your assistant a doll?"

Feeling his wife's gaze upon him, the man explains, "Well, honey, it's a term of affection. She's very hard-working, and Daddy appreciates her efficiency."

"Oh," says his little girl, "I thought it was because she closes her eyes when you lay her down across your desk."

Moral of the story.  True sales professionals know that displaying your doll collection at work is never a good thing.  It's going to eventually get you in trouble one way or the other.

"Blessed be Providence which has given to each his toy: the doll to the child, the child to the woman, the woman to the man, the man to the devil!"          -      Victor Hugo
