Sales Joke of the Day (December 14) Ice Fishing.

It was a bitterly cold winter day.  The salesman decided to go fishing and cut a hole in the ice, but didn't catch a thing.  Then a young boy came along, cut a hole in the ice nearby and proceeded to catch fish after fish.   Eventually the salesman went over to the boy and said:  "I've been here six hours and haven't caught one fish.  You've been here only half an hour and you've at least ten.  What's your secret?"

The boy replied:  "Roo raf roo reep rur rurms rarm."

"Excuse me," replied the salesman, "I didn't catch what you just said."

"Roo raf roo reep rur rurms rarm," stated the boy for the second time.

"I'm sorry," said the salesman.  "But I still can't understand a word you're saying."

The boy spat out a wad of ugly brown slime into his hand and said:  "You have to keep your worms warm!"

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that in order to be successful at sales you need to keep your baiting material fresh.   If your material gets old or cold, your prospects will start to freeze you out and your commission catch will quickly be reduced to zero.  Always make sure that any bait coming out of your mouth, is only the best you have to offer.
