This is one of the best Networking jokes I’ve ever heard and I hope it starts your New Year right. Many thanks to Mitch Langen of Asheville, NC who called and shared it over the phone. We’ve been friends for years and I consider him one of the all-time greatest Networkers in the world. I had the good fortune of sponsoring him once, and I marveled at his work ethic and creativity. I’m not surprised he came up with this joke that made me laugh until I got a headache.
I suggest you send it to your downline. They’re all sitting around bored by now, full of turkey and ham, praying for an e-mail. Be sure to tell them that this is from Mark Yarnell and that if they join the Holy Grail, they’ll get their own newsletters, strategies and concepts that will allow them to make so much money in 2008 that they’ll be able to purchase their own jets and islands in the Pacific. One of our Holy Grail members recently made an offer on Long Island. It was her second choice because her Upline had already snapped up Bermuda.
Here’s Mitch’s joke:
A guy calls a friend about an upstart MLM, ground floor deal. Here’s the conversation:
Bob: “Hey Steve, I’ve got to get you in this unbelievable company. I know you’ve always wanted the perfect ground floor deal and this is it.
Steve: “What’s the product?”
Bob: “It’s a special beet juice from the Amazon that cures cancer, heart attacks, arthritis and completely stalls the aging process. It’s been approved by the FDA as an all natural cure-all.”
Steve: “Wow! What about the comp plan?”
Bob: “It’s a unilevel that pays 25 generations with a matching bonus on all front line and a 5% profit pool for everyone who does $5 a month in sales.”
Steve: “Wow! What about the owners?”
Bob: “The owners are Microsoft, Bayer and Bank of America and they’ve committed 7 billion dollars for the roll-out.”
Steve: “Wow! Can I leave the check to my kids when I die?”
Bob: “Yes, as a matter of fact, upon your death, the monthly check is placed in a lifetime annuity fund by Bank of America and your family gets an extra 5% interest paid monthly for life. Your kids will actually inherit more than you earned.”
Steve: “Wow! How much does it cost to sign up?”
Bob: “Five dollars, but that $5 leverages you $300 worth of products and qualifies you to receive full downline commissions for your first 24 months. After that, it’s five dollars a year to qualify.”
Steve: “Oh Wow! Bob, I have one last question. In two weeks, I’m scheduled to have my head surgically removed, frozen and placed in cryonic storage for seven years. I already have a donor body from a young Brazilian who will be 18 so my head will be sewn onto a new young body in seven years once doctors have finished developing a cure for my rare blood disease. Will the company let me keep my position and continue in seven years exactly where I left off?”
After a long silence…
Bob: “Gee Steve, I don’t think so. I haven’t seen that in the policies and procedures.”
Steve: “Ah Hah! I knew there was a catch!”
