This is a Rolls Royce in-joke.

The RR factories were turned over to military engineering in the War. Other smaller items were also made, mainly illicitly. Like these -

Someone showed the above photo on Facebook and here's the response -

'My dad worked in Royces during the war. He used to tell a story about when the Government Minister visited and asked a chap in the machinery bay 'How many fighters have we made this week?'

'Oh, about 50' the chap said.

'A MAGNIFICENT contribution towards the war effort!' said the politician, to which the chap replied 'Oh, fighters. I thought you said lighters'.'

A man walks into a barber shop and says, "I'll have a shave and a shoe shine."
The barber lathers his face and sharpens the straight edge razor while a woman with the biggest, most beautiful breasts he has ever seen kneels down and shines his shoes.
The man says, "You and I should spend some time in a hotel room."
She replies, "My husband wouldn't like that."
The man says, "Tell him you're working overtime, and I'll pay you the difference."
She says, "You tell him......
He's the one shaving you."
