We're all trying to figure out exactly the same thing.  The fact that you would accuse us of taunting him is hurtful.

I have never seen the word "literally" used four times in one poast.

Literally!

Hello gentlemen. Is this the thread to get a quote on my auto and home insurance?

It literally is the best thread for information about the fine opportunities offered by Farmers insurance. You literally cannot find a better source on the Internets.

I will never look at J.K. Simmons the same way again.

You mean Oscar-winning actor, J.K. Simmons? I still sort of chuckle about that.

It seems like a lot of work convincing people your company is objectively the best. Why not just make a webpage, explaining how your company is objectively the best, then simply hand business cards with the web URL and a sign page complete with payment? You could also not have to give away part of your commission as you do with the current methodology: mo' money!

I think you are failing to be truly creative.

That's right, I forgot about that. Makes it even more chuckle worthy.

I know a lot of later-famous actors got their starts in commercials and other low-end acting gigs, but I'm not sure I know of anyone else who has simultaneously been a commercial shill (not counting those sweet, sweet lucrative Japanese gigs) and an Oscar winner.

I'm always amused when I'm in a foreign country and I see famous actors or singers doing commercials, especially really dumb ones that they would hate for anyone in the US to know about. haha.

Yes, I'm sure that they want me to sell insurance to everyone I know, but isn't  that just how the sales business goes? If you want to see a pyramid scheme, try out Primerica. They require you to invite  people to every meeting and then try to get them to sign on as "agents.  If you bring in someone who signs up, you get royalties from any business they sell, so the focus is to bring in new recruits rather than selling insurance.. just like Amway.

Are you sure you understand how a loan works?

If they don't mention it, it's not a loan!
