Little Johnny apparently knows more about how the government works than over half of the nation.
While it’s only a joke, there couldn’t have been a better way for this kid to break it down for his teacher. Check it out below, courtesy of Chicks on the Right:
The kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited. Their weekend assignment had been to sell something, then give a talk on productive salesmanship.
Little Sally led off.
“I sold Girl Scout cookies and I made $30,” she said proudly. “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success.”
“Very good,” said the teacher.
Little Jenny was next.
“I sold magazines,” she said. “I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events.”
“Very good, Jenny,” said the teacher.
Eventually, it was Little Johnny’s turn. The teacher held her breath.
Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher’s desk.
“I made $2,467,” he said.
“$2,467!” cried the teacher. “What in the world were you selling?”
“Toothbrushes,” said Little Johnny.
“Toothbrushes,” echoed the teacher. “How could you possibly sell enough toothbrushes to make that much money?”
“I found the busiest corner in town,” said Little Johnny. “I set up a Dip and Chip stand and gave everybody who walked by a free sample.
“They all said the same thing: ‘Hey, this tastes like dog food!’
Then I would say, ‘It is dog food. Wanna buy a toothbrush?’
“I used the government’s method of giving you something crappy for free and then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth.”
Boom! This kid has some good parents!
