Plum offer

A greengrocer with a business in Cinderford put up a sign in his shop window that read "Plums, 20p each — four for £1."

All day long, customers came in querying his offer pricing...

"Don't be ridiculous! I should get five for £1!"

The grocer agreed and packaged five plums into a small brown bag. The baker next door had been watching these peculiar antics and at close of business, asked the grocer, "Aren't you going to fix the mistake on your offer sign?"

"What mistake?" the grocer asked. "Before I put up that sign no one ever bought more than one plum."
