A fellow is going on tour of a factory that produces various latex
products. At the first stop, he's shown the machine that manufactures
baby-bottle nipples. The machine makes a loud Hiss-Pop! noise.

"The hiss is the rubber being injected into the mold," explains the guide.
"The popping sound is a needle poking a hole in the end of the nipple."

Later, the tour reaches the part of the factory where condoms are
manufactured. The machine makes a noise: Hiss, Hiss, Hiss, Hiss-Pop!

"Wait a minute!" says the man taking the tour. "I understand what the hiss,
hiss is, but what's that pop every so often?"

"Oh, it's just the same as in the baby-bottle nipple machine," says the
guide. "It pokes a hole in every tenth condom."

"Well, that can't be good for the condom!" the man states. "Very true, but
it's great for the baby-bottle nipple business.
