    This was said by Victor Borge;

    "You know, some people have asked me why why there are three Pedals on these Grand pianos..
    Well, the pedal in the middle is there to Separate the two other Pedals.

    ..Which might be bad news for people with three feet.."

    Oh man, he's the greatest.

    ha! go onto youtube.com and watch the videos of Borge. Some are hysterical, for example this one:

    (and it will help Mr. Techneut because it has Dutch subtitles :wink: )

    Evan, you're writing is too small. And I have my reading glasses on! Maybe you can 'write' larger in the future? :)

    Victor Borge on the history of the piano:

    "The first piano was just one big key. You had to play it with your whole arm like this. (he demonstrates). Now, the way you see the piano today
    ... that wasn't until someone invented the cracks. ...Then we had civil rights...."

    also

    "Before I begin, the Steinway Piano Co. has asked me to announce that this is a Baldwin piano."

    So funny. I love that comedian.

    I've seen that one before. Yes - it is hilarious!! But don't worry Nathan. I'm in my workshop right now making a set of those wooden bar things, so no more complaining from me! :lol:
