Thread Name: Know any autoharpy jokes?
Subject: RE: Know any autoharpy jokes?
Its only a paltry 8 years since this thread was last accessed, but I have a urgent need to find at least a good half dozen ready made Autoharp jokes to coincide with the birthday of a friend who is an Autoharp afficionado coming up tomorrow. Just at the moment I havent the time to do the standard conversions of other jokes as detailed by Laura above. Thats because

I only found out about the birthday about an hour ago as I was looking at an email and a link he sent to my wife on the theme of banjo's and obviously banjo players. I'll past that in at the end of this post as well as the link to show you how this started.

Since Graeme's birthday is tomorrow I would really like to repay him in kind. Oh come to think of it, pictures, poems or anything else humorous that is derogatory of Autoharps and Autoharp players would be equally appreciated.



PS: I should point out that the person I got excited about meeting and showing my own 1928 Vega banjo was the one and only Greg Deering so forgive me....... I was not worthy, I was not worthy....:-)

Dear lesley,

You have been sent this article link by graeme courtesy of

Personal Message: Proof that banjo players not only make us suffer for
their art, but go to extremes themselves! This article is also notable
in that the banjo in question is made by the bloke Andrez was excited
about meeting up at Guildford.
