Brass Ep. 49
They passed a building that had no roof. Iron recalled a story from this corner of town. Eight women built a rocket in their attics over the course of six years. They wrote a book about their exploits, sales of which went through the roof.
The ladies managed to get their rocket launched. Unfortunately, they never returned. It was presumed, they were loft in space.
Man, I still feel awkward with the ‘through the roof’ punchline. It doesn’t matter how far detached you get from the original joke, it’s always there at the back of ya mind.
