I have 1000 one liner jokes that I would like editing so:
*they are originals
*and meet the needs of my target markets

Here's a before and after sample so you can see what I mean

Before

"Leaving them wanting more" pretty much sums up my customer service skills.

After

"Leave clients wanting more" describes our approach to customer service.

The After is worded slightly differently to make it an original joke and also sounds more like what an owner would say ..he'd say 'our' not 'my'.



You must be a native english speaker to bid please..I'm expecting the jokes to be 100% correct english and proof read
