    **** that's funny. I soiled myself, almost. I was already shook from Ignorami's brilliance. I think I threw a rib out, on this thread.

    On the one hand, I really wish people like this were around here, coming to my door.
    On the other hand, the fact that they do not has likely spared me a lot of time in the dojo office with the door closed.

    I'm really disappointed.

    From the title, I was expecting something more like a Penthouse Letters type story that involved... you know, "touching."

    Could someone less lazy than I am make up such a story about a door-to-door karate salesman? Here, I'll get you started:

    "Dear Penthouse, I never thought this could happen to me, but one day while out selling karate lessons door-to-door..."

    Pulling one out at this point would be a great response.

    I'm just curious, with this response do you guys usually carry firearms with you when someone knocks on your door, or do you quickly return back with one?
