"Come in, sit down please."
"So what's the gig, Mr Bell?"
"Look, Freddie, this telephone I've invented – thing is, now we need jingles, tunes that play when you're hanging on the line for ages. Must be really short."
"So they play repeatedly and get annoying. You do short stuff?"
"The Minute Waltz."
"Too long. Do you have a Half-A-Minute Waltz?"
"A Demi-Minute Waltz? Sorry, no."
"Can't you play your Minute Waltz twice as fast?"
"Perfect – you've got the gig. It'll sell like hot-cakes in the call centres."
