Transcription

Mr. Bunion: Oh! But I'm so tired! Hum! Um! There's a hive of industry! Droves of men and boys are in that place paying the penalty for being alive. I'll go in and visit--
/
Mr. Bunion: Do you allow people inside? Can a fellow visit the factory? I'd like to go through the plant if I may
Man: If you do not try and steal any steel rails, you may go in.
/
Man #2: Yes, our blast furnace is the largest in the world. Why do you ask? Do you want to see it?
Mr. Bunion: I would like to drop this valise into your furnace if I could arrange it with you.
/
Man #3: Your valise would not last a second if thrown in to our furnace, but it would spoil our steel so we can not do it.
Mr. Bunion: Yes, I suppose it would spoil the steel. It spoils everything it goes against.
/
Man #2: There's a trip hammer with which we flatten out the hardest of steel. Strikes a blow of a thousand tons, 500 a second.
Mr. Bunion: Well, eh. Why can't I put this valise under it and see it work. What do you say?
/
Man #2: Sure! Ill put it right here.
Mr. Bunion: If that trip hammer will flatten out steel it ought to do something with that box.
/
Man #2: There she goes. Isn't it powerful?
Mr. Bunion: Um
/
Man #2: Oh! I broke it! Now I'll get fired!
