A man came into a shop with a ‘Salesman Wanted’ sign In a window. He went up to the owner and said, “I-I-I w-w-waannn-t the j-joooob-b.”
“I don’t know if this job would suit you because of your speaking impediment,” said the owner.

“I h-h-havvve a w-wi-wiiiife and s-s-s-six k-kkkids, iiii-I re-really neeeed thi-thi-this j-j-job!” said the man.

“O.K. Here are three Bibles. Go out and sell them,” said the owner.

So the man went out and came back an hour later.

“H-here-sss your m-m-money.” said the man.

The owner was impressed, so he gave the man a dozen more Bibles and sent him out. The man came back in two hours and said, “Her-ere’s y-yo-o-our m-m-money.”

The owner said, “This is fantastic. You sold more Bibles in three hours than anyone has sold in a week. Tell me, what do you say to the people when they come to the door?”

“W-welllll,” said the man, “I r-r-ring the d-door bell, a-a-and s-s-say ‘H-Hel-Hello, M-m-maaaad-dam, d-d-do you w-w- want t-t t-to buy thi-thi-this B-B-Bible, o-o-o-o-r d-d-do y-you w-w-want m-me t-toooo read it t-t-t-t-to you? ‘”
