Sent to me on Facebook

C, E-flat, and G go into a bar. The bartender says, "Sorry, but we don't serve minors." So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them.
After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished, and G is out flat. F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough. D comes in and heads for the bathroom, saying, "Excuse me; I'll just be a second." Then A comes in, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor. Then the bartender notices B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and says, "Get out! You're the seventh minor I've found in this bar tonight."
E-flat comes back the next night in a three-piece suit with nicely shined shoes. The bartender says, "You're looking sharp tonight. Come on in, this could be a major development." Sure enough, E-flat soon takes off his suit and everything else, and is au natural.
Eventually C sobers up and realizes in horror that he's under a rest. C is brought to trial, found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of D.S. without Coda at an upscale correctional facility.

Seamus, do you have the lyrics to McNaughtan's Romeo and Juliet (same treatment as Macbeth and Hamlet)? Fellow looking for them on a thread.

Excellent, Stu.      The first part is well known, but the whole thing is quite a theoretical story.   Looks worth memorizing.

And if the coal worker who falls down the shaft ends up a lot smaller than when he started, the key is (drum roll!):
A flat minor diminished

Sorry Bruce, I don't. I'll see if I can track 'em down.
