Marketing terms explained

As a follow up to my post on humor from areas that aren't typically funny, and a nod to my day job I humor (not original, just something I got in my email):

Explanation Of Marketing...

The buzz word in today's business world is MARKETING.
However, people often ask for a simple explanation of
"Marketing." Well, here it is:

1. You're a woman and you see a handsome guy at a party.
You go up to him and say, "I'm fantastic in bed."
That's Direct Marketing

2. You're at a party with a bunch of friends and see a
handsome guy. One of your friends goes up to him and,
pointing at you, says, "She's fantastic in bed."
That's Advertising.

3. You see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him
and get his telephone number. The next day you call and
say, "Hi, I'm fantastic in bed."
That's Telemarketing.

4. You see a guy at a party; you straighten your dress.
You walk up to him and pour him a drink. You say,
"May I?" and reach up to straighten his tie, brushing
your breast lightly against his arm,and then say,
"By the way, I'm fantastic in bed."
That's Public Relations.

5. You're at a party and see a handsome guy. He walks
up to you and says, "I hear you're fantastic in bed."
That's Brand Recognition.

6. You're at a party and see a handsome guy. He fancies
you, but you talk him into going home with your friend.
That's a Sales Rep.

7. Your friend can't satisfy him so he calls you.
That's Tech Support.

8. You're on your way to a party when you realize that
there could be handsome men in all these houses you're
passing, so you climb onto the roof of one situated
towards the center and shout at the top of your lungs,
"I'm fantastic in bed!"
That's Junk Mail.

And my addition:

9. You've been invited to a party where you know there'll be a handsome man, so you start a rumor that you know he'll hear about that the rest of the women attending the party have a particularly nasty infectious disease.

That's Rovian marketing.
