Jose is wearing the Shock Collar this morning!

Today's question: In England, starting in the late 1700’s, there was a job called “knocker upper”. You would find this person in all areas of the city, particularly in blue collar parts of town. And a knocker-upper had one main job to do... and to accomplish it - they carried a long fishing rod like stick with them to get it done. Thanks to technology, we don’t have needs for knocker uppers anymore, but what service did a knocker upper provide?
