Joke of the week

halfemptyA marketing person was trying to convince the insurance agent that a glass half full of water could be easily sold to the companies' clientele. An actuary was standing near by watching the exchange.

Marketer: This is our newest product. A glass half full of water. It is clear, refreshing and satisfying. This is the best water on the market. Anyone could sell this.

Agent: It is half empty, how do you expect me to sell that? No one should be expected to sell a half empty glass.

Actuary: Personally, I think you gave him way too much glass.
