ElderlyJokes Harvey's Grandfather Clock Suddenly Stops Working. This Is Hilarious. 6.6k Views Harvey’s grandfather clock suddenly stops working right one day. He loads it into his van and takes it to a clock repair shop. In the shop is a little old man who insists he is Swiss but has a heavy German accent asks Harvey, “Vat sims to be ze problem?” Harvey says, “I’m not sure, but it doesn’t go ‘tick- tock-tick-tock’ anymore. Now it just goes ‘tick…tick…tick.'” The old man says, “Mmm-Hm!” And steps behind the counter, where he rummages around a bit. He emerges with a huge flashlight and walks over to the grandfather clock. He turns the flashlight on and shines it directly into the clocks face. Then he says in a menacing voice, “Ve haf vays of making you tock!” See more Previous joke A Bear Was Driving A Truck. Next joke A Boy Was Cycling With A Basket.
