Yesterday's seminar at the Doubletree Hotel (Irvine Spectrum) was fantastic.

The audience filled a double-sized room with some overflow. Here's the joke I used to set the stage for the real estate investor seminar:

A guy goes into a doctor's office because he is not feeling well. The doctor runs some tests.

After receiving the test results, the doctor tells the patient, "I have some bad news and some good news. The bad news is you have a combination of SARS, Avian Flu and West Nile Virus."

The patient reasonably responds, "Wow that sounds really bad. What's the good news?"

"The good news is that we have a special diet for you: pizza, pancakes and tortillas."

The patient questions, "Pizza, pancakes and tortillas? What's that going to do?"

Doctor: "Absolutely nothing. It's the only diet we can slide under the door."

The joke slayed. The audience stayed.
