58. How to Give a Sales Presentation

Q: I remember a cartoon from ’76, ‘ 77, ‘ 78 ?? which showed three ways to put on a sales presentation. One was to be clean cut and professional, one was to come in acting like a clown, and one was to give BJs under the table. What issue was that in?

A: It was the December 1975 (Money) issue. The article was called “The National Lampoon Guide to Effective Salesmanship” by Tony Hendra and Gerald Sussman, illustrations uncredited. (Thanks to Jay.)

    You’ll have to take that up with Jay (see the first post). He is actually the guy who puts that stuff on the official NL website.
