I heard you were great in bed…

greatinbed.jpgT his joke is millenniums old, but worth repeating, as Anders did a couple of weeks ago.

But it was Merry Elrick‘s comment/follow-up punchline that cracked me up!

Herewith the joke and Merry’s punchline:

You go to a party and you see an attractive girl across the room. You go up to her and say, “Hi, I’m great in bed, how about it?”
That’s Advertising.

You go to a party and you see an attractive girl across the room. You talk to a friend about it. She goes up and says “Hi, my friend over there is great in bed, how about it?”
That’s Media Relations.

You go to a party and see an attractive girl across the room. You recognize her. You walk up to her, refresh her memory and get her to laugh and giggle and then suggest, “Hi, I’m great in bed, how about it?”
That’s Public Relations.

You go to a party and you see an attractive girl across the room. You stand straight, you talk soft and smooth, you open the door for the ladies, you smile like a dream, you set an aura around you playing the Mr. Gentleman and then you move up to the girl and say, “Hi, I’m great in bed, how about it?”
That’s Selling.

You go to a party, you see an attractive girl across the room. SHE COMES OVER and says, “Hi, I hear you’re great in bed, how about it?”
Now THAT is the power of Branding.

To which Merry replied:

You go to a party, have a few drinks, and then you walk home. You climb to the top of a rooftop and shout at the top of your lungs, “I’m great in bed!”
That’s Spam.


BRILLIANT!

    From my esteemed colleague Ed Markey at Goodyear:
    Out in the desert, a group of prairie dogs were having a problem. Coyotes were on the prowl and were hunting the prairie dogs.
    So they had a meeting. They said, “the coyotes are a problem, they’re hunting us down and we just can’t move fast enough. We’ve got to do something. Anybody got any ideas?”
    One prairie dog says, “I know! We learn to fly…and we fly away from them!”
    They all got excited, and said, “that’s a great idea! How do we do that?”
    So the prairie dog says, “Easy. You grow wings.”
    Another says, “Okay…how do we do that?”
    And the prairie dog says, “Hey, hey, don’t look at me. I’m in marketing. You need somebody in operations.”
