A man was using a rope and pulley apparatus to hoist a piano to a second story window on Main Street. It had just reached the window when a gust of wind caused the lo load to shift. The man quickly stepped on the end of the rope, grabbed another rope, made a lasso, and roped the end of the piano to stabilize it. Looking up, he noticed a crowd had gathered to watch.
"Don't just stand there", he yelled, "Give me a hand!"
So the crowd applauded. ”
