When I say I'm broke...

Post by Bham34 »


A little old lady answered a knock on the door one day, only to be
confronted by a well-dressed young man carrying a vacuum cleaner.

"Good morning," said the young man. "If I could take a couple of
minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in
high-powered vacuum cleaners"

"Go away!" said the old lady. "I haven't got any money!", "I'm
broke!" and she proceeded to close the door.

Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and
pushed it wide open. "Don't be too hasty!" he said. "Not until you have at least
seen my demonstration." And with that, he emptied a bucket of horse manure on
to her hallway carpet.
"If this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces
Of this horse manure from your carpet, Madam, I will
Personally eat the remainder.

The old lady stepped back and said, "Well I hope You've got a really
good appetite, because they cut off my electricity this morning. What part
of broke do you not understand?"
"Believe more deeply. Hold your face up to the Light, even though
for the moment you do not see."
