Sales agent to prospective customer. "Those stairs?"

"Oh, we knew these condos would sell out as soon as people saw them! We always planed on selling out and adding more floors."

...The stair climbing equipment at the discount gym really leaves something to be desired....

They have a "steam room" that's a few plastic yard chairs in a room heated by exhaust from the adjacent dry cleaners.

The free weights? Obviously whatever they could get for free...

The staircase? That's our new marketing strategy. As soon as the new owners see that, they always want to add on a new floor.

Which has another staircase, of course.

No, Stairman put in a full day, it was Wallman who put in over time.

When I said take the door at the top of the stairs, I didn't mean TAKE the door at the top of the stairs.
