Who’s That On The Telephono?


    No.2 “Yes what it, what’s the matter?”
    No.112 “The shopkeeper here sir, I’m on black.”
    “The colour of my telephone, its black.”
    “What’s that got to do with the price of fish?”
    “Nothing sir.”
    “Well if it is of any interest to you, I’m on yellow and black.”
    “Yellow and black, two telephones at the same time, that’s impressive.”
    “Not really, now what’s all this about?”
    “I just thought you’d like to know that Number Six has just purchased a small notebook.”
    “What about it?”
    “Perhaps he’s going to write a thank you note for the flowers.”
    “What flowers?”
    “I’ve no idea sir.”
    “Do you sell flowers?”
    “Not since that oriental girl set up her flower stall business. And sales of The Tally Ho have dropped since you gave Number 236 a license to run that kiosk of hers!”
    “So Number Six bought a small notebook, anything else?”
    “Yes sir, a Cuckoo clock.”
    “A Cuckoo clock, what are you doing selling Cuckoo clocks?”
    “They’re a special import sir, like cameras and the records.”
    “Well alright, just as long as you don’t go mad and start selling mobile phones!”
    “Mobile what sir?”
    “Oh never mind, just get off the line!”

Be seeing you
