Freelance Writing-Crafting the Best Message
A good freelance writer knows her job is to get the message across-poetically, or succinctly depending on the client. We use words to shape opinion, bring in customers, and to market a new idea in a novel and compelling way.
Our challenge is to craft the right statement for the right occasion. There are so many ways we can state one basic fact; a good writer uses words to gently draw her reader in, to engage, entertain and amuse. This joke, though not necessarily well-written, is a perfect example of how words can convey a message.
Two prostitutes were riding around town with a sign on top of their car which said, ‘Two Prostitutes,$50.00′.
A policeman, seeing the sign, stopped them and told them they’d either have to remove the sign or go to jail. Just at that time, another car passed with a sign saying, ‘JESUS SAVES.’
One of the girls asked the officer, ‘How come you don’t stop them?!’
‘Well, that’s a little different,’ the officer smiled . . .’Their sign pertains to religion’. So the two ladies of the night frowned as they took their sign down and drove off.
The following day found the same police officer in the area when he noticed the two ladies driving around with a large sign on their car again.
Figuring he had an easy arrest, he began to catch up with them when he noticed the new sign which now read: ‘Two Fallen Angels Seeking Peter, $50.00′.
Apologies if you find the joke offensive.
