Life As A Salesman

If you’ve never worked in a serious sales job or known someone who has, you probably won’t get this video. If you have, this is going to crack you up!

I have done a great deal of sales work for a lot of different companies.

Sadly, this video sums up everything that sucks about doing this job – for many companies. Luckily, my current employer is nothing like this, recognizes all of these pitfalls and has a compensation plan that is exactly the opposite of what is portrayed here.

Unfortunately, this is the exception rather than the rule.

Many thanks to Yannis for sending this one in.

Kim Jong-il to Obama: Give Me All Your Money Yo!

Me love you long time!

North Korea’s long-running policy of quietly extorting money from the U.S. and South Korea through threat of force has finally come out in the open.

According to this story on the Australian Broadcasting Company web site, the normally secretive regime of Supreme Leader Kim Jong-il is seeking $65 trillion (that’s right, with a T) in damages it says the U.S. has caused North Korea in the 60 years since the beginning of the Korean War.

KCNA (the North Korean news agency) said the figure includes $US26.1 trillion arising from US “atrocities” which left more than 5 million North Koreans dead, wounded, kidnapped or missing.

The agency also claims 60 years of US sanctions have caused a loss of $US13.7 trillion by 2005, while property losses were estimated at $US16.7 trillion.

Personally, I would agree that North Korea has lost trillions of dollars in the last 60 years. Just look at the difference between the standard of living there and in South Korea. The only area where Uncle Frankie and Dear Leader disagree is in where to place the blame. It’s all on you Lil’ Kim!

This would be funnier if it weren’t for the real threat that North Korea poses. They can stir-up real trouble in a Pyongyang minute and everyone knows it. What the hell? If we can bail out AIG why not the DPRK?

Drakar Druella: Dopey and Destitute

I don’t know whether to feel sorry for this guy or just amazed at how gullible he is. He gave a “psychic” nearly $150,000 to solve his personal problems. Drakar must have been in some deep doo doo to decide that was the correct course of action.

On top of everything else, Drakar felt it appropriate to go on television to let EVERYONE know what a dope he is. Jeez buddy, where will it end?
