News, but not the serious kind
Juicy fruits in our birthday suits?
Sit down, sir. As your neighborhood bank manager I appreciate you coming to us for your small business loan. Now, tell me a little about your idea.
It’s pretty simple. I plan to launch Lamar’s Buck Naked Door-to-Door Fruit.
Excuse me? The fruit is naked?
No, the people selling it are. We have a naked man and woman deliver fruit to your house in wheelbarrows. It’s never been done before.
Perhaps there’s a good reason for that.
Anyway, they’re selling apples and oranges… No bananas, or melons, too much risk of double entendre with those. We’ve done our homework, and we think we’ll make a fortune.
Really? How much can you sell oranges for, anyway?
Oh, we give those away.
Then how do you make your money?
The woman delivers the apples, and those are $1,000 each.
Put me down for one a day, Lamar. Here’s your bank loan.
