A woman customer comes to the butchery and requests the rate of lamb.
“5 a pound,” is the answer.
“But the butcher next door sells it for 2 a pound,” she objects.
“Nu, if so go and buy it there,” says the butcher.
“But he’s all out,” she intimates.
“Git,” says the butcher, “… whenever I will be out of lamb it will only 1 a pound. Promise!”
