To try out the new topic format here's my first attempt.
Having read many posts there seems to be quite few people with a musical bent (a musician myself, although others may disagree, I'm a drummer you see) so thought it might be fun to see just how many comic quips/slights aimed at the musical type are known by those here so to start the ball rolling here are few aimed specifically at me:
A drummer totally fed up with the verbal abuse decided to change instrument and went into local music shop. He asked the very patient salesman if he could buy the red saxophone and the white squeeze box form off the wall. Salesman reply was "Well you can have the fire extinguisher but the radiator really has to stay".
Guy goes into shop and walks to counter and says "I'd like to buy a guitar please" The guy behind the counter looked confused for a second and then replied "Your a drummer aren't you?". "Yes I am, how'd you guess". "No guess mate this is a chip shop!"
What do drummers, trains and buses have in common? They're never keep to time!
How do you know when the drum riser is level? Drool drips from BOTH sides of the drummers mouth!
Any more fresh abuse to drummers welcome but more importantly I would like to see reference to other instruments.... Just to be able to get my own back really.
Here's hoping for some fun reply's
