Factory tour

A businessman from Cheltenham is showing his factory to a potential customer from Bristol.

At noon, when the lunch whistle blows, two thousand men and women immediately stop work and leave the building.

"Your workers, they're escaping!" cries the visitor. "You've got to stop them."

"Don't worry, they'll be back," says the businessman. And indeed, at exactly one o'clock the whistle blows again, and all the workers return from their break.

When the tour is over, the businessman turns to his guest and says, "Well, now, which of these products would you like to order?"

"Forget the product," says the visitor. "How much do you want for that whistle?"
