A fellow was struggling in a Birmingham canal. He called out to a passer-by for help and the chap on the bank shouted, 'What's your name?' 'Bill Hawkins!' spluttered the man in the canal. 'Where do you work?' asked the passer-by. 'At the engineering works up the road!' gasped the drowning man. 'Get me out of here!'
But the man on the bank walked off and made his way to the factory, where he demanded to see the boss. 'Do you have a Bill Hawkins working here?' he asked.
'Yes, we do,' said the boss.
'Well, I've called for his job - he's just drowned in the canal.'
'You're too late,' said the boss. 'The fellow that pushed him in has got it.'
