Rusty has a spectacular aura aboutRusty has a spectacular aura about
There are several errors in this joke.

The use of 'se' is unnecessary.
Two verbs in a row should never be conjugated.
One verb wasn't conjugated that was supposed to be.
Vital words are missing, so it's hard to make sense of the punchline.

thats confusing ... i emailed it to a Spanish teacher who was born in Puerto Rico and she understood it ... anyone know how is that possible???

update : i see the error now .. it should be "se corrió dentro el vendedor y vetió caca de vaca en la alfombra entera" .. but why was she able to understand it??? also it shouldn't be "voy a mujer" it was copied and pasted so it didn't come out right

ok now i see y it wasn't understood

It's not a new joke, so maybe she has heard it already and was trying to be polite.

I'm sorry, it's not understandable for a person who hasn't heard it before, it makes no sense whatsoever..

Un entusiasta vendedor de aspiradoras se acercó a llamar a la puerta. La abrió una mujer y antes de que él tuviera la oportunidad de decir algo, inmediatamente se metió (dentro de la casa, se supone -cambio el verbo porque en España es una palabra muy soez), vertió caca de vaca por toda la alfombra y dijo: "Para limpiarla es muy buena mi aspiradora". Dijo la mujer: "¿Quieres ketchup?". "¿Por qué?", preguntó a la mujer. "Porque nos acabamos de mudar aqui y todavía no tenemos electricidad?".

Ya os podéis imaginar qué se comerá el vendedor de aspiradoras con el ketchup.

Me parece que el vendedor debió de haber dicho algo sobre "Si no lo limpia bien..." antes de la pregunta de la mujer.

En el chiste como yo lo he oído el vendedor le dice a la señora que la aspiradora es tan buena que él promete comerse lo que la aspiradora no recoja.
