In response to my little post about the wacky horn player, Tom Mangan has posted a few music jokes. A few viola music jokes. Hmmm. So I guess they are at least “close to music” jokes. You know … violas … well … um … you know …. ;-)

Yes, violas have long been the mocked instruments of the orchestra. Even while trombones deserve more mockery. (Dan joined in the fun by posting a joke on Tom’s blog. Check it out. It’s very good. And very true.)

But in all fairness … here are a few oboe jokes:

How do you make an oboist play a sustained A-flat?
Steal the tuner batteries. (If you don’t get this one, feel free to ask! ;-)

What is a burning oboe good for?
Setting a bassoon on fire.

What is the definition of a half step?
Two oboes playing in unison.

Hmmm. I think we need better jokes. Anyone have some to share?
