Snowblower Sales Pitch: Unicorn Sticker Included

In my hometown of Bismarck, ND a snowblower is a nice thing to have.  Selling a snowblower in the summertime is a difficult task.  No one wants to think about those long months of back breaking snow removal while lounging on the beach of the Missouri River, soaking in the sun.

But IF there was ever a sales pitch that might make one consider buying a snowblower in the middle of the ND summer, it will be this.  As found on

Clearly this guy could sell icecubes to an Inuit.  But that’s not all.  If you’re not completely sold and digging into your wallet by this point, read on…

This snowblower has proved to be a tough sell, so for this week only I am including my 20″ box fan. The fan has a bad motor but if you would replace the motor it should work fine. The fan is about 5 years old. It only spins clockwise so it can only blow air out of your house not in. Also the fan has a unicorn, 1993 Greenpeace, and a Kansas City Royals sticker on it. These could probably be removed with a little elbow grease if you are a Republican or a Yankees fan. Need to get rid of the fan because my cat likes to play on it.

I have been asked by several for photos of the unicorn sticker. Unfortunately due to a mishap while playing a match of marco polo my camera no longer works. However I have drawn a picture of what the sticker looks like and added it to the ad.

Please tell me he takes Paypal!
