Thanks to Jessica Duchen we now know that Germaine Greer has a thing for violists. And she doesn’t like viola jokes.

Does she not know that there are so many undeserved oboe jokes? Many viola jokes, in fact, are “translated” into oboe jokes. Go figure. And trombone? Sure, I’ve seen ’em. Percussion too. And … well … any instrument pretty much. And then there are the (deserved!) conductor jokes.

But maybe she just can’t take a joke?

Heck, we love to joke about our instruments. It’s just the way it is. But I suppose if feminism is now doing just fine these days, one has to find something new to work on. 😉

(And I do apologize for leaving the multitudes of readers wondering why I haven’t blogged ALL morning long! What was I thinking?! Oh. Wait. I wasn’t thinking. So there you go. Did ya miss me? … um … don’t answer that, please!)
