Not bad...I'll give that joke a one-thumb up.

I heard another joke this weekend that cracked me up. Here it is....

*********************************************************

I was traveling back to my hometown and, responding to Mother Nature, decided to stop at one of those rest areas on the side of the road.

I went into the washroom. The first stall was taken, so I went into the second stall. I had just sat down when I heard a voice from the other stall.

"Hi there, how is it going?"

I am not the type to strike up conversations with strangers while sitting on the john in restrooms on the side of the road. I didn't know what to do, but finally I said, "Not bad."

Then the voice said, "So, what are you doing?"

At this point, I was starting to find the situation a bit weird, but I said, "Well, I'm just sitting here."

Voice from the other stall, "So, can I come over?"

Now I'm getting nervous and a bit worried. But decided I have to put a stop to this and so I said, "I'm a little busy right now. No you may not!

Then I heard the person, all flustered, say, "Look, I'll call you back. Every time I ask you a question, the idiot in the next stall keeps answering me!!!"


That's a riot!

I thought this was going to turn out to be a temperament joke.
Everyone knows that Ceesharp and Deeflat simply aren't identical.
Anyone who thinks otherwise must be ... (wait for it) ... comma-tose.


knyuck knyuck :lol:

Too obvious :) Nice story, although with RT's fingerprints all over it, including a misspelled composer name.

Glad you like it, though it was a day late for the April Fool's joke. Yes, I think we have great relationship now, it has come a long way, hasn't it! :wink:

Can't fool Chris, he's a hard man to fool! :P Now you have me curious, who did I misspell?

well according to your quote "nothing is always absolutely so" so by that logic it doesn't matter :D

A lady musician friend of mine, Sylvia Bullet, attended my 95th birthday celebration, and wrote me a poem
so clever, that i wish to share it with everyone! Isn't the poem most remarkable?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Smullyan Smullyan riddle me this:
What is the mobius without the twist?
Without something can nothing exist?
Can a year be measured by a trip around the sun?
Could it be we were zero before we were one?
Was it ever thus and do numbers ever lie?
Can our souls be infinite like the decimal expansion of pi?
And if I were to count your years--each one equaling five--
I'd say "Congratulations! for these 19 years alive! Happy Birthday!"

Yes, it's a remarkable poem.

However: It would scan a little better if the word "decimal" was dropped from the line about the expansion of pi. It's unnecessary, anyway, since said expansion will be "infinite" in any numbering system.

There's also the extra beats in the last two lines, but they match each other (except for the "Happy Birthday", of course) so it does not upset the metre.

Happy Birthday!
