A violin joke for today
Some time ago I signed up to receive daily jokes from jokestop.net. Today's joke just arrived and I feel a need to share it here:
Little Hope was practicing the violin in the living room while her father was trying to read in the den.
The family dog was lying in the den, and as the screeching sounds of little Hope’s violin reached his ears, he began to howl loudly.
The father listened to the dog and the violin as long as he could. Then he jumped up and yelled above the noise, “Can’t you play something the dog doesn’t know?!”
That got a laugh out of me! Thanks for sharing that.
Thanks Andrew! That is a good one.
Andrew and Miguel, I just inhaled my tea while reading these. Thanks for the chuckle!
Andy's joke reminds me of when I was a kid and practiced our dog always followed me into 5h3 living room during practice almost as if he enjoyed the noise, he also did this when my sister practiced her flute.
My other half told me not to practise the guitar, as it would annoy the dog, but I noticed that when I played, he would prick his ears and tilt his head slightly and watch me avidly. Meanwhile the cat thinks "I could do better if I had any interest at all in what you are doing."
What do you call a violinist who has become tired of playing the violin?....(ready now!).......finger bored.
One thing violinists and baseball players have in common is a focus on perfect pitch.
In this era of social distancing, many of my good friends have told me that I need to stay 6 feet apart from my violin.
I've been told I have fingers like lightning....they never hit the same spot twice.
My dog's favorite Bach Cantata is Wachet Arf. It has given him a whole new leash on life.
Violinist (to bartender): "Can you serve me a Bazzini martini?"
Old King Cole
Everyone on the bus thinks I'm mad now, for giggling at my phone!
When cats stopped reacting with hostility to my taking out the violin, I knew I was making progress.
If you play the violin, the best breed of dog to have is the orchestra pit bull.
The Paganini Caprices.....They're finger quick'n good.
Updated social distancing guidelines for violinists:
Left or right?
@Andrew. Left or right? In an ensemble it may depend on whether the violinist is the inside or outside player in their desk. For a player on their own, then it could depend on their political persuasion :)
