Excuses aside, here's the GOTW and I think it's a pretty good one!!! Enjoy!!!!
My buddy's grandfather clock suddenly stopped working right one day, so he loaded it into his van and takes it to a clock repair shop.
In the shop is a little old Bavarian man who has a very heavy German accent. He asks Mike, "Vat sims to be ze problem?"
My buddy explained, "I'm not sure, but it doesn't go 'tick-tock- tick-tock' anymore. Now it just goes 'tick . . . tick . . . tick.'"
The old man says, "Hmmmm!" and steps behind the counter, where he rummages around a bit. He emerges with a huge flashlight and walks over the grandfather clock.
He turns the flashlight on, and shines it directly into the clocks face and. then says in a menacing voice:
"Ve haf vays of making you tock!"
