Sales Joke of the Day (January 23) The Ugly Dog.

A little salesman walked into a bar with a dachshund under his arm.

"Look at that silly dog," sneered a burly guy with a rottweiler.  "Look at that long nose and those stumpy little legs.  That's the ugliest dog I've ever seen."

"Yeah?" said the little salesman bravely.  "But he's real mean."

"Mean?  Don't make me laugh!" exclaimed the burly guy with rottweiler.  "I'll bet you my rottweiler can finish off your ugly mutt in two minutes!"

"Okay.  You're on!" replied the little salesman.

The dachshund and the rottweiler lined up nose to nose, then the dachshund suddenly lunged forward and bit the rottweiler in half.  

The burly guy couldn't believe it.  "What kind of a dog is that?"  he growled.

"Well," replied the little salesman.  "Before I cut his tail off, he was a crocodile."

Moral of the story.  True sales professionals know that in order to succeed at sales it's always better to under promise and over deliver.  In other words, always make sure that your bite is worse than your bark.

"You gotta be really careful what you bite off. Don't bite off more than you can chew. It's a dangerous world."  - Ozzy Osbourne
