SEX & LAUGHTER

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with National Marketing Realtors 7456

We all know that sex seems to be used to sell everything. I've seen several posts on Active Rain this last week about being "sexy" in Real Estate and of course my favorite was the post with the Hottie that came with the house (even if one contributer deemed her demonic looking").

But what about those of us that aren't so hot (anymore). Now when I walk past a mirror I wonder "How did that happen?". Every day I declare I'm going to get that American Gladiator body back (yea that will happen right after my hair grows back).

On to laughter! I've found that just like studly beauty, humor needs exercising as well. Old jokes get tired, cynicism and sarcasm turns you bitter, racy jokes have no place in this business, so again just like building the body you need to work on your humor as well.

Last night over dinner with several friends we got on the topic of favorite movie lines. With the exception of "I know what your think-in punk, did I fire 5 shots or did I fire 6? Well are you feeling lucky today punk?" all the favorite movie lines that were mentioned came from comedies. The bulk of those came from Mel Brooks movies or movies staring Leslie Nielsen. My favorite lines "Nice Beaver" (spoken by Leslie Nielson to Priscella Presley in the Naked Gun series as she stood on a ladder above him and handed him a stuffed beaver and of course "Nice Knockers" spoken by Gene Wilder as Young Frankenstein while Teri Garr's breast was in his face although he was looking at and talking about the knockers on the castle door. Garr's response, "Thank you Dr."

I've decided I need to watch more comedies. Please add your favorite movie lines to this post and your recommendations for a good belly laugh.

My favorite is not really a line but rather a scene from the movie "Dave".  The shower scene with Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver is an absolute riot.  Expecially to watch him when she says "Turn around and face me when I am talking to you!"  LOL - Steve

Steve, I agree it was a riot. I think Dave was one of the most under rated movies ever.

Sex sells, but I am not sure how you can achieve the h'ot babe on the hood of a car in a skimpy outfit with a wind machine blowing her hair' effect with a house.  Now having some hot women out working in the yard across the street might get the guys interested, but I think the wives might have something to say.

As for comedies, I do believe I have used more one liners from Blazing Saddles than any other movie.

Humor sells!  No question about it.  If a person can make me laugh, they have a friend for life. 

Favorite lines

MASH.  The TVE show: 

Frank:  "Why do people hate me the minute they meet me""

Hawkeye:  "Saves time Frank?"

==============================

From the movie "A New Leaf" when Walter Mattheu is towed to the mechanic after breaking down - -- again.

Mechanic:  "How often does this happen?"

Mattheu:  "Two, three times a week."

Mechannic:  "How often do you have to be towed in"

Matthew:  "Two, three times a week". 

================================================

I love comedies.  It's the only thing I've watch for as long as I can remember.  Of course, on TV, I watch the news, but that's rather comical too, isn't it?

Nothing is more sexy than, "It's nothing personal, It's business."
