One day Count Dracula is walking down the street when suddenly 10 tons of smoked salmon sandwiches, sausage rolls, chicken wings, chipolatas, potato salad, pizza slices, and deviled eggs fall on him from a great height, crushing him to the ground. "Oh no!" he gasps with his dying breath, "It's Buffet the Vampire Slayer!"
Mortgage Broker Sizzling on C-Loans
"We just closed on C-Loans loan number 159117 ($2.5 million) and C-Loans loan number 162821 ($3.08 million), bringing our year-to-date total of fees paid C-Loans to $54,194 from 10 loan closings. That translates into approximately $90,000 of net fees to Benchmark from your leads! Not bad. That will take care of the overhead and then some. Would I spend $54K to make $90K? It's a no brainer. Thanks for the opportunities."
--- David Smyle, President, Benchmark Financial, Commercial Mortgage Bankers

A man goes to see his Rabbi. "Rabbi, something terrible is happening, and I have to talk to you about it." The Rabbi asked, "What's wrong?" The man replied, "My wife is poisoning me." The Rabbi, very surprised by this, asks, "How can that be?" The man then pleads, "I'm telling you, I'm certain she's poisoning me. What should I do?" The Rabbi then offers, "Tell you what. Let me talk to her, I'll see what I can find out, and I'll let you know." A week later the Rabbi calls the man and says, "Well, I spoke to your wife. I spoke to her on the phone for three hours. You want my advice?" The man anxiously says, "Yes." "Take the poison," says the Rabbi

A hesitant driver, waiting for traffic to clear, came to a complete stop on the freeway ramp. Shortly, the traffic thinned out, but the driver still waited. Finally a furious voice from the vehicle behind him cried, "Hey, you jerk! The sign says, 'Yield', not, 'Surrender!'"

Christmas Diamond Joke
A guy bought his wife a beautiful diamond ring for Christmas. A friend of his said, "I thought she wanted one of those sporty 4-Wheel drive vehicles." "She did," he replied. "But where in the heck was I gonna find a fake Jeep?"
If you are trying to place a large commercial construction loan, the single most important factor is the experience of the developer.
I'm actually surprised that I'm saying this because until recently I would have said, "The most important factor is the amount of cash the developer has in the deal." However, there are tons of companies supplying equity to developers these days ... but ONLY if the developers have successfully completed a number of similar projects.
So when you are completing your C-Loans app for a $20 million development project on 238 apartment units in Las Vegas, don't be surprised if the deal gets turned down because the largest deal he had done up until now was a $4 million development project on a self-storage facility in Maine.
South Korea Joke
"According to a report by the World Energy Experts, North Korea is so short of electricity that the whole country switches off at 9 o'clock. The electricity is shut off at 9. So it's a country where few people speak English, they have power outages all the time, they're ruled by a funny-looking guy with a strange accent. It's like California, without the traffic." -- Jay Leno

The newly-wed wife said to her husband, when he returned from work, "I have great news for you. Pretty soon we're going to be three in this house instead of two."

But then she said: "I'm glad that you feel that way because tomorrow morning my mother moves in with us."

Man Versus Animals Joke
"I had a linguistics professor who said that it's man's ability to use language that makes him the dominant species on the planet. That may be. But I think there's one other thing that separates us from animals. We aren't afraid of vacuum cleaners." -- Jeff Stilson
