Sign Of The Times

In the lift at work this morning, we were discussing how cold it was, but how mild the winter has been up till now, global warming etc etc - as you do when sharing a lift with people you don't know very well.

One of my fellow-travellers, who had a foreign accent, suddenly observed "The wolves in Norway are mating too early."

After he got out, the other occupant and I turned to each other and shrugged.

"He's in Sales," explained my companion.

I just wonder what countersign he was expecting, and what would have happened had I provided it.
