The Sales Manager and the Bear

May 15, 2008

Once in a while I review the statistics for this blog to find out which keywords people use to find me. Surprisingly, people often find this blog when looking for funny sales compensation jokes. Here is a good one for your enjoyment.

The Sales Manager and the Bear
A sales manager and an operation manager went bear hunting. While the operation manager stayed in the cabin, the sales manager went out looking for a bear. He soon found a huge bear, shot at it but only wounded it.

The enraged bear charged toward the sales manager, who started running for the cabin as fast as he could. He ran pretty fast but the bear was just a little faster and gained on him with every step. Just as he reached the open cabin door, he tripped and fell flat.

Too close behind to stop, the bear jumped over him and went rolling into the cabin. The sales manager jumped up, closed the cabin door and yelled to his friend inside, “You skin this one while I go and get another!”

Centive Compel Funny Ice Breaker

One of my reader sent me a link to a funny video clip created to market Centive Compel on YouTube. It’s a song about a “sales guy” and a “finance guy” having… well some conflicts. It could be a good icebreaker before a dry ICM meeting. Click here to view this Compensation Management clip.
