While proudly showing off his new apartment to friends late one night, the drunk led the way to his bedroom where there was a big brass gong.

"How does it work?"
"Watch", the man said, giving it an ear-shattering pound with a hammer.
Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed,
"For God's sake, you bastard, it's 2 am in the morning!!!"
