Well our best and only west coast sales manager has done it again, just too much time in the local wine tasting country, but this is a story worth taking the time to read, Ken please check your local AA and I don’t mean the Auto Club.
Stan Spanky was the manager for an ad agency that was barely making it. Looking to change his luck and the agency, as Sandy believed in good luck omens, he purchased a Tag Heuer timepiece that gave off "good vibes" to Mr. Spanky. While smoking a new filter cigarette that had just hit the market Sandy came up with an idea for a sales promotion featuring the filter as its selling point. Having his art department throw together some posters with his ideas on it Sandy arranged an appointment with the cigarette company. When he completed his sales presentation to the cigarette company big shots Sandy was greeted by loud hand clapping and cheers from the big shots. They loved his slogan which proudly stated, "This new atomic carbon filter doesn't release any nicotine or tars it traps." Sandy neglected to say it only trapped 5% of tars and nicotine. Sales of the cigarette rose almost at once and the plants had to operate 24 hours daily to meet the demand. Fame and fortune came to Sandy and his ad company. Huge companies took out long term contracts with the agency and soon Sandy was the CEO of the newly named agency "Spanky's Great American Ad Agency" When asked how he had done so well over the years Sandy would point to his Tag timepiece and exclaim, " this baby keeps great time, is a good looker, and is a good luck charm." On his birthday Sandy sold his well maintained Tag watch to Girard's watches with the hope it will bring fame and fortune to its new owner. Sandy points out when purchasing this watch be sure to take advantage of Girard's specially designed for the customer layaway program. "By gosh the large panted one knows how to design a layaway program" wheezed the dashing executive as he puffed away on a fresh cigarette and thought Girard should stop eating ice cream as it must be bad for his health not to mention putting on the pounds. He also noted from the rear Girard reminded him of a 1950 Nash he once owned.
