Geordie was working in the machine shop in Reyrolles. He went to the joiners shop and asked the foreman if he could have some sawdust for his rabbit. The foreman said, “Help yerself mate, there’s plenty of it.” Geordie went the next day with a wheelbarrow and filled it with sawdust. When he got to the gatehouse, the security man asked him what he wanted with all the sawdust. Geordie told him it was for his rabbit and he was allowed to take it home. Three days later, Geordie is once again at the gatehouse with a wheelbarrow load of sawdust, and again he’s allowed to take out of the works. This went on for several weeks until a security man said, “Yer takin an awful lot of sawdust, how many rabbits hev ye got?” Geordie replied,”Ah hevent got any rabbits, ah’m pinchin barras!”
