Supplemental GI Insurance
I was going to put this one in the Comedy area but maybe it's better here?
Bubba Joe had been in the Army for a dozen years or so but it was Bubba Joe's first assignment to a military induction center. Now, Bubba Joe was a pretty good chatterbox so the brass assigned him the duty of advising new recruits about the government benefits, especially the GI insurance to which they were entitled.
Before long the Captain in charge of the induction center began noticing Bubba Joe was getting a 99 percent sign-up for the top GI insurance. This was odd since it cost the inductees nearly $30.00 per month more for their higher coverage than what the government was already granting.
The Captain asked Bubba Joe what he told the inductees which convinced them to take the extra insurance. Bubba Joe just shrugged his shoulders and said he told them the truth. The Captain thanked Bubba Joe but the Captain decided he should sit in the back of the room and observe Bubba Joes' sales pitch.
The next group that came in, Bubba Joe stood up and gave the standard spiel in a folksy style. The only time Bubba Joe went outside the standard talk was his last few sentences.
"If you have the normal GI insurance and go to Iraq and are killed, the government pays your beneficiary $6,000. If you take out the supplemental GI insurance. which will cost you an additional $30.00 per month, the government pays your beneficiary $200,000. Now," Bubba Joe concluded, "who do you think they're gonna send to walk point- the guys with standard insurance or the guys with supplemental GI insurance?"
