A Fable that seems so close to truth

Lance and trace are walking down a street in Houston when they see a sign on a store that reads, ‘Suits $5.00 each, shirts $2.00 each, trousers $2.50 per pair.’

Lance says to his pal, 'Look here! We could buy a whole gob of these, take 'em back to Provo, sell ‘em to our friends, and make a fortune. Now when we go in there you be quiet, okay? Just let me do the talkin’ ‘cause if they hear your voicet, they might think we’re ignorant, and try to cheat us. Now, I’ll talk in a slow Texas drawl so’s they don’t know…’

They go in and Lance says with his best fake Texas accent, ‘I’ll take 50 of them suits at $5.00 each, 100 of them there shirts at $2.00 each, and 50 pairs of them there trousers at $2.50 each. I’ll back up my pickup and …’

The owner of the shop interrupts, ‘Ya’ll are from BYU , ain’t ya?’

‘Well…yeah,’ says a surprised Lance. ‘How come you know dat!’

‘Because this is a dry-cleaners.’

This is the Flyer we need. Love you.



All that’s missing is the latest and greatest: essential oil, juice, or some other MLM (oh excuse me, network marketing) deal.

@flyer, not today, but that was funny. Unless that essential oil can make bikes run better, you know like a chain lube or hub grease.
