A fellow is going on tour of a factory that produces latex products. At the
first stop, he's shown the machine that manufactures baby-bottle nipples.
The machine makes a loud Hiss-Pop! noise. "The hiss is the rubber being
injected into the mold," explains the guide. "The popping sound is a needle
poking a hole in the end of the nipple."
Later, the tour reaches the part of the factory where condoms are made.
The machine makes a noise: Hiss, Hiss, Hiss, Hiss-Pop! "Wait a minute!"
says the man taking the tour. "I understand what the hiss is, but what's
that pop every so often?" "Oh, it's just the same as in the baby-bottle
nipple machine," says the guide. "It pokes a hole in every fourth condom."
"Well, that can't be good for the condom!" the man states. The guide
replies, "No, but it's great for the baby-bottle nipple business!"
