You are receiving this letter because you are a client of either Blackburne & Sons or C-Loans, Inc. Removal instructions are below. Today we're going to talk about the importance of "getting the deal off the streeet." And, of course, like always, we have lots of cute, clean jokes, two funny pics, and a hilarious video for you.

Joke Du Jour

A little boy was excited about his first day at school. He was so excited, in fact, that only a few minutes after class started, he realized that he desperately needed to go to the bathroom. So he raised his hand politely to ask if he could be excused. Of course, the teacher said yes, but asked him to be quick. Five minutes later he returned, looking more desperate and embarrassed. "I can't find it", he admitted.

The teacher sat him down and drew him a little diagram to where he should go and asked him if he will be able to find it now. The boy looked at the diagram, said "yes" and goes on his way. Five minutes later he returned to the class room and says to the teacher "I can't find it". Frustrated, the teacher asked John, a boy who has been at the school for awhile, to help him find the bathroom. So two fellas go together, and five minutes later they both return and sit down at their seats. The teacher asks John, "Well, did you find it?" John is quick with his reply: "Oh sure. He just had his boxer shorts on backwards"

Psycho Story - True

Janet Leigh, the beautiful blonde star of the horror movie, Psycho, used to live in Bevelery Hills. Her mansion is now for sale. Did you know that the master bath does NOT have a shower? It only has a big cast iron bathtub. After filming the movie, Janet Leigh refused to ever take a shower again!

Get Your Deal Off the Street Quickly

One of the things that all experienced commercial mortgage brokers learn, after a few too many heartbreaks, is to get their commercial loan off the street as soon as possible. Unfortunately there is no penalty for lying in the commercial loan industry, and if you wait too long to get the borrower signed to an exclusive fee agreement or a lender term sheet, some big liar is going to promise your borrower a commercial loan that is 120% loan-to-value at 2% interest.

The good news is that no one is faster to issue a term sheet than Blackburne & Sons. Once our agreement is signed, you now have a signed agreement showing the borrower promised to pay you your fee.

Radio Station Joke

Because our new refrigerator was taller than our old one, I told my wife I'd have to cut away part of an overhanging cabinet to make it fit. Not wanting to mess it up, I called a local radio home-fix-it program for advice. I was in the middle of getting the instructions when my wife burst into the room. "You won't believe this," she said, "but there's a guy on the radio with the same problem!"

Very Cute Christmas Video

You gotta watch this hilarious, sweet little lip syncing Christmas song. Wait for the bass 'singer' - he is an absolute riot!

On a Personal Note

Halloween is a strange holiday.  As I understand it, the day originates from a Celtic celebration of honoring the gods and to convert pagens.  The reasons for dressing up served to disguise the mortal from the actual evil spirits supposedly on the hunt for souls to take.  Conversley, the concept of Trick or Treating represents how these evil spirits would disguise themselves as humans and would visit Celtic homes in hopes of claiming new souls.  

I say this is a strange holiday because had I known as a child what I know now, perhaps I would not have participated year after year.  But that being said, to children it is not about the dressing up or the haunted houses or the jack o' lanterns; It is all about the CANDY!

So, my daughter will be dressing up as a pumpkin and will go trick or treating.  As good parents, we cannot let her eat more than a few pieces of candy ... which leaves a whole lot left for me!

Outfit Joke

"I love to shop after a bad relationship. I don't know. I buy a new outfit and it makes me feel better. It just does. Sometimes if see a really great outfit, I'll break up with someone on purpose." -- Rita Rudner
