WHEN I SAY I'M BROKE...I'M BROKE.
"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!" and she proceeded to close the door.
Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed 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 onto 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 damned good appetite, because they cut off my electricity this morning."
The AFL final series is under way, my tipping rate is 1 out of 3 so far and the two teams I tipped to play off in the grand final, Sydney and Adelaide, have both been defeated this weekend, while it is still mathematically possible for them to play one another in the grand final, I'm going to modify the selection to say that one of them will win the grand final, if pressed further I will tip Sydney.
