~Your wife just eloped with the banjo player who lives next door?
~You take it rather calm - you don't seem to be surprised or excited!
No, there's no reason to be. We stood the banjo clanging as long as we could. This morning the wife and I tossed to see who should get rid of him. She lost
~Your son is making good progress with his banjo. He is beginning to play quite nice tunes.
@Do you realy think so? We were afraid that we'd merely got used to it.
~I just got rid of my banjo in part exchange for a new car.
@I didn't think they accepted things like that for a car.

I granduated from a correspondence school.
@Boy, you sure lost lots of your mail.

@Maybe his tin cup.
~Why do you always cry when you play the banjo?
@I don't know - but every time I play tears come to my eyes.
~Why not stuff cotton in your ears?
~I hear that you are a musician
@No, but I own a banjo.
