A simple explanation of marketing

Marketing is an essential part of self-publishing. So it was a revelation when I found this. I thought I would share to impart my knowledge ;-)

1. You’re a woman and you see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and say, “I’m fantastic in bed.” That’s Direct Marketing.

2. You’re at a party with a bunch of friends and see a handsome guy.One of your friends goes up to him and, pointing at you, says, “She’s fantastic in bed.” That’s Advertising.

3. You see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and get his telephone number. The next day you call and say, “Hi, I’m fantastic in bed.” That’s Telemarketing.

4. You see a guy at a party; you straighten your dress. You walk up to him and pour him a drink. You say, “May I?” and reach up to straighten his tie, brushing your breast lightly against his arm, and then say, “By the way, I’m fantastic in bed.” That’s Public Relations.

5. You’re at a party and see a handsome guy. He walks up to you and says, “I hear you’re fantastic in bed.” That’s Brand Recognition.

6. You’re at a party and see a handsome guy. He fancies you, but you talk him into going home with your friend. That’s a Sales Rep.

7. Your friend can’t satisfy him so he calls you. That’s Tech Support.

8. You’re on your way to a party when you realize that there could be handsome men in all these houses you’re passing, so you climb onto the roof of one situated towards the center and shout at the top of your lungs, “I’m fantastic in bed!” That’s Junk Mail.

9. You are at a party, this attractive older man walks up to you and grabs your ass. That’s former President Bill Clinton.

10. You liked it, but twenty years later your attorney decides you were offended and you are awarded a settlement. That’s America!

Fancy a chuckle?

Forget this November rain and laugh at it. Maniacally.

After an examination, the doctor said to his elderly patient, “You appear to be in good health. Do you have any medical concerns you would like to ask me about?”

“In fact, I do.” said the old man. “After my wife and I have sex, I’m usually cold and chilly; and then, after I have sex with her the second time, I’m usually hot and sweaty.”

When the doctor examined his elderly wife a short time later he said, “Everything appears to be fine. Are there any medical concerns that you would like to discuss with me?”

The lady replied that she had no questions or concerns. The doctor then said to her, “Your husband mentioned an unusual problem. He claimed that he was usually cold and chilly after having sex with you the first time; and then hot and sweaty after the second time. Do you have any idea about why?”

“Oh, that crazy old bastard” she replied, “That’s because the first time is usually in January, and the second time is in August.”

A buddy of mine has just told me he’s getting it on with his girlfriend and her twin. I said “How can you tell them apart?” He said “Her brother’s got a mustache.”

The Pope just finished a tour of the East Coast and was taking a limousine to the airport. Since he’d never driven a limo, he asked the chauffeur if he could drive for a while. The reluctant chauffeur pulled over along the roadside, climbed into the back of the limo and let the Pope take the wheel. The Pope then merged onto the highway and accelerated to over 90 mph to see what the limo could do.

Suddenly, the Pope noticed the blue light of the State Patrol in his side mirror, so he pulled over. As the trooper approached the limo the front window rolled down and he peered in. Suddenly he said in a flustered voice, “Just a moment please, I need to call in.”

The trooper called his boss and explained that he had just pulled over a very important person for speeding. “How do I handle this, chief?” asked the trooper.

“Who is it? Is it the Governor?” questioned the chief.

“No! This guy is more important! than that”

“Gosh, is it the President?” asked the chief.

“No! Far more important!”

“Well, who the heck is it?” screamed the chief.

“I don’t know, sir,” replied the trooper, “but he’s got the Pope driving his limo.”

You can say lots of bad things about pedophiles but at least they drive slowly past schools.


33meme life

“Whoever can answer this next question correctly can go home for the day.” Naturally the entire class sits up and pays attention at the possibility of skipping the whole day, particularly the class nerd.

She slams her hand on the desk for emphasis and says, “How many drops of water are there in the ocean?”

Naturally, none of the kids have the answer to such an abstract question. The teacher smugly tells them, “I guess we’re all staying, then!”

The next day, the teacher makes the same offer. “Whoever can answer this next question correctly can go home for the day.” She slams her hand on her desk for emphasis and asks, “How many grains of sand are there in the desert?”

Naturally, nobody can answer, and the teacher smugly tells them that everybody will be staying. The class nerd decides he’s had enough.

At the end of the day, he gets a fistful of ping-pong balls from the gym, paints them black, and wedges them under the edge of the teacher’s desk so no one will be able to see them.

The next day, the teacher makes her announcement as usual. “Whoever can answer this next question can go home for the day!” And as she slams her hand on the desk, the ping-pong balls are shaken loose and bounce all over the room to the delight of the entire class.

Infuriated, the teacher demands, “All right, who’s the comedian with the black balls?!”

“Eddie Murphy,” says the nerd. “See ya Monday, bitch.”

Being a modest man, when I checked into my hotel on a recent trip, I said to the lady at the registration desk, “I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled.” To which she replied, “No, it’s regular porn, you sick fuck.”

Jim and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Jim suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there. Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled Jim out.

When the Director of Nursing became aware of Edna’s heroic act, she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable. When she went to tell Edna the news she said, “Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you’re being discharged; since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of another patient, I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness. The bad news is that Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself in his bathroom with the belt of his robe right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he’s dead.”

Edna replied; “He didn’t hang himself; I put him there to dry. Can I go home?”

A lady to doctor: My husband has a habit of talking in his sleep! What should I give him to cure it?

Dr: Give him an opportunity to speak when he is awake.

It’s Joketoberfest!

Let’s drink to that, shall we?

I was talking to a girl in the bar last night. She said, “If you lost a few pounds, had a shave and got your hair cut, you’d look all right.”

I said, “If I did that, I’d be talking to your friends over there instead of you.”

The lawyer says: “I have good news and bad news.”

The CEO replies: “I’ve had an awful day, let’s hear the good news first.”

The lawyer says: “Your wife invested $20,000 in five pictures that are worth a minimum of $2 million.”

The CEO replies enthusiastically: “Well done, that is very good news indeed! You’ve made my day; now what is the bad news?”

The lawyer answers: “They are pictures of you in bed with your secretary.”

During my prostate exam I asked the doctor, “Where should I put my pants”?

“Over there by mine”, was not the answer I was expecting.

A large group of Taliban soldiers in Afghanistan are moving down a road when they hear a Voice call from behind a sand dune: “One Canadian soldier is better than ten Taliban”.

The Taliban commander quickly orders 10 of his best men over the dune where a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence. The voice once again calls out: “One Canadian is better than one hundred Taliban.”

Furious, the Taliban commander sends his next best 100 troops over the dune and instantly a huge gun fight commences. After 10 minutes of battle, again Silence. The Canadian calls out again: “One Canadian is better than one thousand Taliban.”

The enraged Taliban commander musters 1000 fighters and sends them to the other side of the dune. Rifle fire, machine guns, grenades, rockets and Cannon fire ring out as a terrible battle is fought …. Then silence. Eventually one badly wounded Taliban fighter crawls back over the dune and with his dying words tells his commander, “Don’t send any more men… it’s A trap. There’s two of them!

As he inserted the rectal thermometer, I got a painfully hard and obvious erection.

“Maybe you should wait outside whilst I finish examining your dog,” said the vet.

An angry wife was complaining about her husband spending all his free time in a bar, so one night he took her along with him.

“What’ll you have?” he asked.

“Oh, I don’t know. The same as you I suppose,” she replied.

So, the husband ordered a couple of Jack Daniel’s and threw his down in one shot.

His wife watched him, then took a sip from her glass and immediately spat it out.

“Yuck, that’s TERRIBLE!” she spluttered. “I don’t know how you can drink this stuff !”

“Well, there you go,” cried the husband. “And you think I’m out enjoying myself every night!”

What does alcohol free beer taste like?

Like going down on your sister. It tastes the same but something’s not right.

A guy picks up a woman in a bar and they go to his apartment. In the bedroom there’s a brass gong and a wooden mallet hanging from a stand and the woman says “What’s that for?”

The guy says “That’s a talking clock. I’ll show you how it works.”

He hits the gong as hard as he can and when the sound dies away a voice from the other side of the wall says “Hey asshole! It’s 3:15 in the morning!”

My opinions are like my bed sheets.

I only change them if it helps me get laid.

Funny zingers

Pressed for time? Here are some short zingers for you!

My wife has been missing for two weeks. The police said to prepare for the worst. So, I went to the thrift shop to get all of her clothes back.

I was in bed with a blind girl last night and she said that I had the biggest penis she had ever laid her hands on. I said “You’re pulling my leg.”

I saw a poor old lady fall over today on the ice. At least I presume she was poor – she only had $1.20 in her purse.

My girlfriend thinks that I’m a stalker. Well, she’s not exactly my girlfriend, yet.

Went for my routine checkup today and everything seemed to be going fine until he stuck his index finger up my ass. Do you think I should change dentists?

A wife says to her husband, “you’re always pushing me around and talking behind my back.” He says “What do you expect? You’re in a wheel chair.”

I was explaining to my wife last night that when you die you get reincarnated but must come back as a different creature. She said she would like to come back as a cow. I said, “You’re obviously not listening.”

Seemed like a good post title, y’know, autumn and alll :-/

Can you spare just $2.00? Ranji is a 9yr old boy living in Namibia. He has only 1 leg, 1 arm and 1 eye. Each day he has to ride 7 miles to school along a narrow road on a rusty bike with bent wheels, no brakes and only 1 pedal.

An engineer who was unemployed for a long time decided to open a medical clinic. He puts a sign outside the clinic: “A cure for your ailment guaranteed at $500; we’ll pay you $1,000 if we fail.”

A Doctor thinks this is a good opportunity to earn $1,000 and goes to his clinic.

Doctor: “I have lost my sense of taste.”

Engineer: “Nurse, please bring the medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”

Doctor: “This is Gasoline!”

Engineer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.”

The Doctor gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days later to recover his money.

Doctor: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.”

Engineer: “Nurse, please bring the medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”

Doctor: “But that is Gasoline!”

Engineer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back. That will be $500.”

The Doctor leaves angrily and comes back after several days, more determined than ever to make his money back.

Doctor: “My eyesight has become weak.”

Engineer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for this. Take this $1,000,” passing the doctor a $500 note.

Doctor: “But this is $500…”

Engineer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your vision back! That will be $500.”

How do you keep a blonde busy for years?

Tell her to count the stairs on an escalator.

A young blonde girl in her late teens, wanting to earn some extra money for the summer, decided to hire herself out as a “handy woman” and started canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighbourhood. She went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to do.

“Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint the porch” he said. “How much will you charge me?”

Delighted, the girl quickly responded, “How about $75?”

The man agreed and told her that the paint, brushes and everything she would need were in the garage. The man’s wife hearing the conversation, said to her husband, “Does she not realise that our porch goes all the way round the house?”

“That’s a bit cynical, isn’t it?” he responded.

The wife replied, “You’re right. I guess I’m starting to believe all those dumb blonde jokes.”

A few hours later the blonde came to the door to collect her money.

“You’re finished already??” the startled husband asked.

“Yes” the blond replied, and I even had paint left over so I gave it two coats.”

Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $75and handed it to her along with a $15 tip.

“Thank you” the blond said, “and by the way, it’s not a Porch, it’s an Audi”.


So, my lesbian friend asked how I view lesbian relationships.

In HD was not the correct answer.

You’ve seen all the commercials. But what really happens when you ask for help with an erection lasting more than 4 hours?

I walked into a drug store and asked to talk to a male pharmacist. The woman I was talking to said that she was the only pharmacist, and since she and her sister were owners of the store, there were no male employees. She then asked if she could help me. I said that I would prefer to speak to a male pharmacist.

The lady pharmacist assured me that she was completely professional and whatever it was that I needed to discuss, I could be confident that she would treat me with a high level of professionalism.

I reluctantly agreed and began by saying, “This is tough for me, as a shy man, to discuss, but I get erections every day that last more than four hours. It causes me a lot of problems and severe embarrassment, and I was wondering what you could give me for it.”

The pharmacist said, “Just a minute. I’ll talk to my sister.”

When she returned, she said, “We discussed it at length and this is the absolute best we can do: 1/3 ownership in the store, a company pickup truck, a king size bed and $3,000 a month in living expenses.

Cowboy: “Give me 3 packets of condoms, please.”

Cashier: “Do you need a paper bag with that, sir?”

Cowboy: “Nah… She’s purty good lookin’…..”

The king of the cannibals tells the three captured men that there is a way to get off the island if they accomplish a certain task. So the king says to the three men, “Collect ten of any single type of fruit and bring them to me.”

But the king tells him, “It’s not over yet. You are to insert all the fruits in your anus without showing any emotions. If you laugh or cry, we will eat you.”

The man hesitates but proceeds to insert the 10 bananas up his anus. 1….2….- But it’s too painful and he cries out of agony. The cannibals eat him instantly.

The second guy that returns has collected 10 cherries. The king also tells him to do the same thing and that the first guy that returned was eaten for crying. The second guy is happy because he is certain he can insert all the cherries in because of their small size. So he proceeds to insert the cherries with ease.

1…2…3…4…5…6…7…8…9..- But the second guy starts laughing and the cannibals also eat him.

In heaven, the first and second guy meet and discuss their unbelievable misfortune. Halfway through the conversation the first guy says to the second guy, “I was watching you from up here and I saw that you nearly completed the task but all of a sudden you laughed. Why?”

Humor isn’t how I make my money

You wouldn’t know it from looking at my blog but I make my living writing books. It’s funny how I always wind up posting jokes, music, and recipes instead. Therefore, jokes:

Two Florida State football players, Bubba and Tiny, were taking an important exam. If they failed, they would be on academic probation and not allowed to play in the big game the following week.

The exam was “fill in the blank” and the last question read, “Old MacDonald had a____.” Bubba was stumped — he had no idea what to answer, but he knew he needed to get this one right to be sure he passed.

Making sure the teacher wasn’t watching, he tapped Tiny in the shoulder. “Tiny, what’s the answer to the last question?” Tiny laughed, then looked around to make sure the professor hadn’t noticed. He turned to Bubba and said, “Bubba, you’re so stupid. Everyone knows that Old MacDonald had a FARM.”

“Oh yeah,” said Bubba, “I remember now.” He picked up his No. 2 pencil and started to write the answer in the blank. Then he stopped. Tapping Tiny on the shoulder, he whispered, “Tiny, how do you spell farm?”

“You are really dumb, Bubba. that’s so easy,” hissed Tiny, “farm is spelled ‘E-I-E-I-O’.”

My wife was pissed off with me so she put, “My husband has a tiny cock” on facebook.

It backfired on her though when her sisters, her mother, and her best friends commented, “We know.”

I was reading an article last night about fathers and sons, and memories came flooding back of the time I took my son out for his first pint.

Off we went to our local pub which is only two blocks from the house.

I got him a Guinness. He didn’t like it, so I drank it.

Then I got him a Stroh’s, he didn’t like that either, so I drank it.

It was the same with the Molson’s and the Labatt’s.

I thought maybe he’d like whiskey better than beer so we tried a few of those. He didn’t.

By the time I decided he just didn’t like to drink, I could hardly push the stroller back home.

The first time I met a girl on-line, in the course of introductory emails I tried to tactly ask what was “her build”… Her reply was “athletic.”

Then we got together.

It hadn’t occurred to me that athletic could also mean “middle linebacker.”

A teacher was standing at the front of the class and she said, “I’d like you to tell me what you think sex is.”

Little Jenny at the front put her hand up and said, “I saw a doggie on top of another doggie – is that sex, miss?”

“Yes, good girl,” she said.

Then little Paul put his hand up and said, “I saw my mummy jumping up and down on my daddy in bed, is that sex miss?”

“Yes, good boy, Paul.”

And then little Tommy stood up at the back of the class and shouted, “Miss, I was watching telly the other day and I saw seven Indians on top of John Wayne, is that sex?”

The teacher said, “No, Tommy.”

He stood back up and said, “I didn’t think it was.”

The teacher said, “Why didn’t you think it was?”

Tommy stood up again and said, “I knew it would take more than seven indians to fuck John Wayne.”

I was sent to prison and I said to my cell mate, “I won’t be in here long.”

He replied, “Well the judge did give you 6 years.”

“Yeah I know, but I think my wife will break me out, she’s never let me finish a fucking sentence before.”

Johnny wanted to have sex with a girl in his office, but she belonged to someone else. One day, Johnny got so frustrated that he went up to her and said, “I’ll give you $100 if you let me have sex with you”, but the girl said “No”.

Johnny said, ” I’ll be fast. I’ll throw the money on the floor, you bend down, and I’ll be finished by the time you pick it up.”

She thought for a moment and said that she would have to consult her boyfriend…So she called her boyfriend and told him the story. Her boyfriend say’s, “Ask him for $200, then pick up the money very fast. He won’t even be able to get his pants down.”

So she agrees and accepts the proposal.

Half an hour goes by, and the boyfriend is waiting for his girlfriend to call.

Finally, after 45 minutes, the boyfriend calls and asks what happened.

She responded, “The SOB used coins!”

A woman goes to her gynecologist.

“What seems to be the problem?” asked her doctor.

“Something is terribly wrong, I keep finding postage stamps from Costa Rica in my vagina.”

The doctor had a look, then chuckled before she said “Those aren’t postage stamps my dear, they’re the stickers off the bananas!”
