How to Make a MillionPounds in One Day
I was in the middle
of giving a lecture on how to make a million dollars in one day,
when a woman in the back of the audience stood up and walked out. It
was a bad sign for me, as this was usually the start of a mass
exodus during my speaking engagements. You see, the only way I know
to make a million dollars in a day is to get a million people to
come hear me speak and charge them a pound each.
So far, I have lured 58 people in one day, which is much less than I
One Sunday morning,
I arrived to my speaking hall and the parking lot was full of cars!
There werenít a million of them, but there were several hundred and
I was excited to give my lecture. I walked in and everyone had their
heads bowed in reverence to me. I found this very touching and
quietly walked to the front and stood behind the microphone. I
grasped the mike with both hands and yelled, ďWho
wants to make a million pounds?Ē Everyone looked
up, but no one said a word. Then 2 men in robes came from behind me
and carried me off the stage. It turns out I had come on the wrong
day and I walked into a prayer meeting by accident. I apologized to
everyone and told them to come back tomorrow and I would make them
rich. The priest told me something very un-priestly and I went home.
