Vaseline: It’s Like Duct Tape… It Always Works
While we were in the store the other day there was a guy at a table taking surveys on different products. He stopped us and asked if we would be willing to answer a few questions about a product, in exchange we would receive that product free.
Sounded easy enough, so we agreed, and the man asked us to pick a card from the box and see what product we would be answering questions about.
So I reached in, and dug around, then pulled out a card. As I handed it to the young man he flipped it over and said, ok I have a few questions for you about Vaseline...
I knew I couldn't handle this with out getting in trouble, so I decided to let Woody handle this one... this is the conversation that followed...
Young man doing the survey: "Can you tell me if you've ever used
Woody: "Yes. We use it
all the time."
He then said: "And if you don't mind me asking,
what do you use it for?"
With a straight face she answered, "We use it for sex."
The researcher was a little taken back. "Usually
people lie to me and say that they use it on a
child's bicycle chain or to help with a gate
hinge. But, in fact, I know that most people
do use it for sex. I do admire you for your
honesty. Since you've been very frank so far,
can you tell me exactly how you use it for
Without blinking an eye she responded: "I don't mind telling you
at all... we put it on the
doorknob and it keeps the kids out."
I bet the young man doing the survey didn't see that one coming...
