Sales Joke of the Day (March 28) The Sheep.

While out visiting clients and dropping by on prospects, the farm implements salesman ran across a sheep that knew how to make butter and buttermilk.  The farmer had no idea of the money he could make from the talented animal, so the salesman bought the sheep, reasoning that he would be able to generate some extra cash on weekends.

So, that weekend, the farm implements salesman set up a roadside stand and instructed the sheep  to work her magic. Unfortunately for the salesman,  traffic was very heavy and the sight of this sheep making butter and buttermilk was so distracting, that naturally there was an accident. 

The police investigated the crash, and issued the farm implements salesman a citation for attempting to make an illegal ewe churn on a busy highway. 

Moral of the story.   True sales professionals know that in order to succeed at sales, you need to stay focused on the task at hand.   Don't become sidetracked by some old yarn, about a sheep at the side of the road.  Surely ewe have better things to do than reading this joke now don't you?   So what are ewe waiting for?   Butter get back to work!!!     Or the only only thing "churning" around here will be your job!
