Sherry’s antique grandfather clock suddenly stopped working as it used to so she loads it on to the back of her ute and takes it to a clock repair shop.
In the shop is a little old man who says he is Swiss, and speaks with a strong German accent.
He look s at the clock and says, “Vat zeemz to be ze problem?”
Sherry replied, “This was my grandmother’s clock and it’s always gone ‘tick-tock-tick-tock’, but now it just goes ‘tick…tick…tick.'”
The old man stood looking at the clock pensively for a moment then stepped behind the counter where he rummaged around and found a huge flashlight.
He walked over to the the grandfather clock, turned the flashlight on, and shone it directly into the clock face.
Then he said in a menacing voice, “Ve haf vayz and meanz of making you tock!”
