During training of apprentices he used to do all the usual tricks of winding apprentices up such as rolling nuts off the wing so it fell on the apprentices head, however one day he accidently dropped a hammer and the apprentice turnt around and said "this'll teach you you b@$t@rd!" and forth with smacked me mate on the prosphetic foot and stoved it in. "Ooh! Ooh! me Foot!" went me mate and jumped and hobbled about, the apprentice being a bit concerned asked if he could do anything, so me mate undid his prosphetic leg, slid it out of his trouser in a shot and dropped it in the hands of the apprentice and said "could you take this to the panel beaters?".
