A little old lady answered a knock on the door one day, only
to
beconfronted by a well-dressed young man carrying a vacuum
cleaner.


"Good morning," said the young man. "If I could take a couple
of
minutesof your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in
high-powered vacuum cleaners."


"Go away!" said the old lady. "I haven't got any money!", "I'm
broke!"
and she proceeded to close the door.


Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door
and
pushedwide open. "Don't be too hasty!" he said. "Not until you have
at
leastseen my demonstration." And with that, he emptied a bucket of
horse
manure on to her hallway carpet.


"If this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this
horse
manurefrom your carpet, Madam, I will personally eat the remainder.


The old lady stepped back and said, "Well I hope you've got a
damned
good appetite, because they cut off my electricity this
morning."

What part of broke do you not understand?
