The other day, I learned a co-worker of mine played the banjo and I joked with him about it. What are your favorite jokes about your favorite/least favorite instruments?

Q. What's the difference between a banjo and grapes?

A. You take off your boots to stomp grapes.

Q. A stupid bodhran player, an intelligent accordion player and Santa Claus are walking down the street when they see a $50 bill on the sidewalk. Who bends down to pick it up?

A. The stupid bodhran player. The other two are fictional characters.

He had just purchase a wonderful new accordian. It was very expensive, so when he stopped for an errand, carefully parked in the shade, rolled up the windows, and locked the car up tight. Imagine the horror of coming back to the car, to see that the windows were smashed in! With heart in his throat, he approached the car, and peered in. In the backseat were TWO accordians.

The difference between a 12/11 dulcimer, and a 16/15? You can slice more cheese per minute with the 16/15.

An orchestra played somewhere in the Middle East. On the first night they played so well that the potentate commanded that their instruments should be stuffed with gold coins. All the musicians were highly delighted.... except the piccolo player.

On the second night, the orchestra played abysmally badly and the potentate was so furious that he commanded that all the instruments should be stuffed up their players a***s.

Again the piccolo player was the unlucky one....

What's the range of a mandolin? Thirty yards if you have a good arm. If you throw a banjo an accordian aand a set of pipes off the Empire State Bldg at exactly the same time what happens? Thunderous applause. A man goes into a pawnshop in Chinatown and sees a golden rat on a shelf. He asks the price and is told "$25 or $100 with the story". He says "FOr $75 you can keep the story" and buys the statue. He walks out and soon becomes aware of a faint scurrying sound behind him. As it starts to get louder he looks over his shoulder to see five and then ten and soon every rat in the city following him. The faster he runs the faster they chase and soon, in desperation, he throws the statue off of Fisherman's Wharf. The rats all follow it into the water and drown. THe man returns to the pawnshop and the proprieter say's " I bet you're here to pay me for the story now". The man replies "No, I'd like to buy that golden accordian"! Well, that's my $.02 worth. Thanks to Hagbard for the $50 Slan agat, Rich
