There’s Humor In Everything…Even Manure!

Hey, everyone! I have a client who started a brand-new role right before we were quarantined. As part of the national sales conference for this new role, he was asked to submit his 2019 accomplishments. Of course, he couldn’t do that because the role was new to him, so what he decided to do instead was to share a funny accomplishment from his previous role.

Now … I’m sharing this with you because 1) I think it’s funny and 2) I think it’s a fantastic reminder that there’s humor in everything . . . even manure.

So, the question I have for you is, “What are you finding humor in today?”


Last year I was on an assignment with a company called Agrivision Farm Management in the Texas panhandle. I was working on implementing some new technology in dairy manure processing.

I had the chance to attend the North American Manure Expo. (There is a conference for everything.)

Before attending, I received notice that there was a competition for the top ten slogans to be printed on the back of the annual t-shirt for the North American Manure Expo. So, being a lover of puns (I enjoy a good pun), I involved my team at Agrivision in helping submit 13 entries for the slogan contest.

Of those entries, we had things like:
  • That was queasy.
  • If they poop it, we will come.
  • Just doo it.
  • Snap, crackle, poop.
Those were not selected.

But out of the ten that were selected, five were entries that my team and I submitted, and I would like to share those with you. We had a lot of fun doing it.
  • What can brown doo for you?
  • Manure happens.
  • The #1 show about #2
  • Solid agenda with loose subject matter.
And my personal favorite and the top one: "Agitated . . . not stirred."
