There is nothing wrong with a banjo or bagpipes

I like banjo jokes, such as 'What is the difference between an onion and a banjo?' 'You don't cry when you cut up a banjo'.

What is wrong with banjos anyway? I know full well what is wrong with bagpipes. They play something that approximates music, almost, vaguely.

This joke amused me all day. 'What is the difference between a trampoline and Scottish bagpipes?' 'You take off your shoes when you jump on a trampoline'.

Ok, you aren't laughing. Back to the banjo then? No? How about a lawyer joke then?

What does a lawyer get when you give him Viagra?
Taller.

It is 11pm. You expect a quality post at this hour?

  6. What are you doing up at 11pm? get some sleep already.
    I hear bagpipes here fairly often, someone living nearby practises on weekends, sometimes on Friday nights. Not every weekend, and he/she isn't so close that it really annoys me.

    1. It was later than I am normally up, River. I did not have to start work early on Saturday. I think I am really a morning person. I don't sleep for more than 7 hours. R sleeps for eight or more, and has nanna naps.

      Bagpipes in the distance might be nice.
