A drunk man was proudly showing off his new apartment to a couple of his friends late one night.
He led his guests to his bedroom, where to there surprise there was a big brass gong and a mallet.
“What’s that big brass gong?” one of the guests asked.
“It’s not a gong. It’s a talking clock,” the drunk replied.
“A talking clock? Seriously?” asked his astonished friend.
“Yup,” replied the drunk.
“How does it work?” the friend asked, squinting at it.
“Watch this,” the drunk replied.
So he picked up the mallet, gave the gong an ear shattering pound and stepped back.
The three stood looking at one another for a moment.
Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed, “You bastard…. It’s three-fifteen in the morning!
