Thread Name: Help: Jew's Harp question!
Subject: RE: Help: Jew's Harp question!
Re Jews Harp, I read somewhere that they were used as an instrument for courting, so I tried it one day, but all I attracted was a big crow who **** down on top of me. Perhaps I sounded like an old friend of his or something ? I met another man one day in Ireland and he said you should be careful playing a jews harp or you might end up with a mouthful of rashers i.e. bacon. Jews/ Jaw harps have been found in excavations in Ireland dated as far back as 13th -14th centuries.
