Any one have a good violin or music joke for kids?

Edited: July 4, 2020, 1:29 PM · I am going to be teaching a violin camp next week for beginning students. I thought some good, silly, music jokes would kind of break the ice each day, but I'm having a hard time finding appropriate ones for kids! It's either adult humor, belitting the violin, violinist or another instrument (i.e. I'm NOT going to tell kids to toss a violinist her case when she's drowning, or viola's burn longer), or way over their heads. An example of one that I'll use is "What do you call a cow that plays violin?" "A moo-sician". Just wondering if someone out there had maybe one or two I could use. Thanks!
