My colleague used to play in a brass band that performed in park bandstands. It was their policy to keep playing until every member of the audience had gone.
One wet afternoon, they played to a small group that gradually dwindled, except for one man who lingered. So the band played on. And on.
Eventually, the tuba player sidled over to the onlooker and politely asked him to leave so the band could go home.
“Actually,” said the man. “I was waiting for the music to finish so I could put the chairs away.”

A genie and an idiot
Three guys stranded on a desert island find a magic lantern containing a genie, who grants them each one wish.
The first guy wishes he was off the island and back home.
The second guy wishes the same.
The third guy says: ‘I’m lonely. I wish my friends were back here.’
Don’t Reinvent the Wheel
The great thing about affiliate marketing through JVZoo or ClickBank is that the affiliate can start earning nearly as much as the product creator without having to create a product.
You don’t have to spend lots of time and money creating a product, because you market eproducts in those affiliate networks in which eproducts are already created and ready to be sold online.
Walter took his wife Ethel to the state fair every year, and every time he would say to her, “Ethel, you know that I’d love to go for a ride in that helicopter.” But Ethel would always reply, “I know that Walter, but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars.”
Finally, they went to the fair, and Walter said to Ethel, “Ethel, you know I’m 87 years old now. If I don’t ride that helicopter this year, I may never get another chance.” Once again Ethel replied, “Walter, you know that helicopter is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars.”
This time the helicopter pilot overheard the couple’s conversation and said, “Listen folks, I’ll make a deal with you. I’ll take both of you for a ride; if you can both stay quiet for the entire ride and not say a word I won’t charge you! But if you say just one word, it’s 50 dollars.”
Walter and Ethel agreed and up they went in the helicopter. The pilot performed all kinds of fancy moves and tricks, but not a word was said by either Walter or Ethel. The pilot did his death-defying tricks over and over again, but still there wasn’t so much as one word said. When they finally landed, the pilot turned to Walter and said, “Wow! I’ve got to hand it to you. I did everything I could to get you to scream or shout out, but you didn’t. I’m really impressed!”
Walter replied, “Well to be honest I almost said something when Ethel fell out but, you know, 50 dollars is 50 dollars!”

A woman was terribly overweight, so her doctor put her on a diet.
“I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip the next day, and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you’ll have lost at least 5 pounds,” the doctor assured.
When the woman returned, she shocked the doctor by losing nearly 20 pounds.
“Why, that’s amazing!” the doctor said, “Did you follow my instructions?”
The woman nodded and said, “I’ll tell you though, I thought I was going to drop dead that third day.”
“From hunger?” “No, from skipping!”
