    Age, to 40. Must have testes.

    I don’t know Jill, I think I can get by without testes if I bandage my breasts flat and stipple a little stubble on my chin. Otherwise I’ll just have to use my feminine wiles and bat my eyelashes to dazzle all the technical types into buying my new electronic thingy.

    717 North Lake…that’s kind of a dodgy neighborhood these days. I think that’s near where Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles is. Maybe I’ll go check it out.

    What’s the difference between a computer salesman and a used car salesman? – THEN: The computer salesman has an A.B. degree with satisfactory credits in physics, electrical engineering, physical chemistry and mathematics. – NOW: The used car salesman KNOWS he’s lying to you.
