A Scot in full kilt regalia entered a pharmacy, stepped up to the counter
and asked the price of a condom. The pharmacist answered that it depended
on the brand, but $2.00 to $3.00 was fairly typical. The Scot furrowed his
brow, thanked the pharmacist, and left.
The next day the same Scot returned to ask what it would cost to repair a
condom. "Repair!?!" replied the stunned pharmacist. "Repair." said the
Scot. "I dunno! I suppose 50 to 75 cents." Again, the Scot thanked him,
turned on his heel, and walked out.
Several days passed. Once again, the Scot strode into the store and
approached the counter. The bemused pharmacist asked whether a decision
had yet been made. "It has indeed! The Brigade has voted to repair."
