I'm curious what does this quote mean? Michael Lastoria's. I found it on this link and I couldn't find any more to the sentence.

“Don’t try to sell down the pipeline nonsense you wouldn’t buy yourself.” —Michael Lastoria, cofounder and CEO, &pizza

    Thank you. That makes sense... I don't buy it = I don't believe it.


    I'm curious about the first half "down the pipeline nonesense" can you explain how it means spread rumor, please?

    "Nonsense" is what is sold "down the pipeline." The pipeline, in the context of selling things, refers to the stream of sales prospects - people you might sell something to.
