How  to Sell  Toothbrushes

The  kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited. Their  weekend assignment was 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. "$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 tooth brushes to make  that much money?"

"I found the busiest  corner in town," said Little Johnny, "I set up a Dip & Chip stand, I  gave everybody who walked by a free  sample."

They all said the same  thing, "Hey, this tastes like dog  crap!"

Then I would say, "It is  dog crap. Wanna buy a toothbrush? I used the President  Obama  method of giving you
  something  shitty, but looks  good,  for free,  and  then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth." The teacher  was speechless. . . . . . . .

Little Johnny got 5 stars  for his efforts, bless his heart. .  .

The Fuck? Do they even have any idea what this allusion is supposed to refer to?

It is dog crap. Wanna buy a toothbrush?

Ya, because any kid who did that wouldn't be beaten within an inch of his life by the first person.

The unspoken lesson here is that you can't get something for nothing. Conservatives would do well to understand this as they try to shut down all government services. Is paying for quality worse than not getting anything at all?

"It looks good...but it's shitty because billionaires spend millions to tell me so. I'd ask myself why that is but since they're billionaires, they must be smarter than me and God must love them better so tra la la! Guess I'll buy a toothbrush!"

Wow. Talk about crowbaring a political message into an otherwise funny joke.

Talk about "good family values." I get it that ReThugs wish to send some wierd message about how Obama is crappy. Ok. That's politics.

But they're also *praising & extolling* the fact that some child sold people shit disguised as food, and then made more money by selling them a toothbrush. WTF??

Really weird, but typical Republican values: lie about stuff, sell people crappy stuff, then sell them something else that they *most likely don't need,* and then fall all over themselves with praise for how "great" they are.

Duly noted that the kid who LIED - and made a lot of money because he LIED - is praised more than the other children who were both truthful and attempting to educate people and encourage community values & civic duty.

Yep: got that message loud & clear.

Do wingnuts even *get* what's being encouraged here?

So let's see:

Lying to make a lot of money off of rubes but not getting caught: check

Getting praised for ripping people off by lying: check

Doing the right thing but not making as much money so not so much praise or adoration: check

Yep: typical rightwing "family" values. Glad to see that, in a constantly changing world, some things remain the same.
