I was attending an advertising seminar.

We broke into small groups and each took a turn telling the group what we do for a living.

It was my turn.

"I work in Medical Malpractice insurance."

The group responded with total silence.

Blank stares.

I think I even heard crickets chirping.

Next girl's turn.

"I work in a club - we sell Lap Dances."

Yeah.

No crickets that time...

Did she garner more attention by demonostrating her product to the audience? :)

*Jane said...

Um..she really needed to attend an advertising conference for..her line of work? Don't the people groups that support that kind of thing, just um..go, without all the gimmicks and fancy advertising? :P haha

Hahahahah...you all have me cracking up. She really said that, "we sell lap dances"..hahahaha.
For some reason that really tickled my funny bone.

*Jane said...

If the lap dancers need to attend advertising seminars, maybe they should find better dancers.

Rick said...

I'm confused. When I stand up to dance, I have no lap. When I sit so I can have a lap, I can't dance. So if these ladies can dance while they have a lap, that would be something to proud of, therefore, advertise.

I would bet the marketing strategies look somewhat different in your two realms of the globe...

This made me laugh out loud which is hard to do!

I am with Mandy. They really shouldn't need to advertise.
