While a college student proudly shows off his new apartment to friends, he leads his friends into the den.
“What is the big brass gong and hammer for?” one of his friends asks.

“How’s it work?” his friend asks.
“Watch,” the student says then proceeds to give the gong an ear shattering pound with the hammer.
Suddenly, someone screams from the other side of the wall, “KNOCK IT OFF, YOU JERK! It’s two AM!”
