Twirling matchbox joke

Two matchboxes are on the table, one on top of the other. As you pick up the top box, the one underneath, which is attached, starts twirling round. Quite a surprise. The original cardboard cover containing the matchboxes is stamped D.R.G.M. and the matchbox cover includes the word Germany.
