    After band practice the other day I had to stop at Wal*Mart to get some deodorant and razors. I left my Rondo P-Bass in my truck.

    When I returned I was aghast to see that my truck had been broken into.

    Upon closer examination, I discovered that someone had picked the door lock and thrown 3 other basses into my truck and left. :D

    Someone has tampered with the original post and replaced all instances of the word "accordion"!

    Tough Crowd.

    I remember this joke get posted somewhere around here 3 or 4 years ago everyone just thought it was the cat's ass.

    I remembered it and figured I'd share it again.

    Sorry!

    I thought it was funny!

    My favorite of all time: What's the difference in an accordian and an onion? No one cries when you cut an accordian in half.

    I first heard that joke over 20 years before you were born, only it was a joke about a Houston Oilers season ticket holder who remembered he had left his season ticket in plain view on his dash and returned to find three more had been left. You can always find a hapless sports team to fit the joke.

    People are generally less willing to give up their bass Players. Unlike guitarists...

    My one guitarist's favorite bass player joke:
    Q: What do you throw a drowning bass player?


    A: His amp.

    I always enjoy laughing along with him when he tells this, because it makes me happy to see the feeble-minded enjoying themselves. LOL

    OK, apart from the drowning bass player and the old banjo joke does anyone know many bass player lines? I've got plenty of drummer jokes but seldom hear any about us bassists!

    Q: What do you say to a bassist in a three-piece suit?

    A: "Will the defendant please rise."

    Hit it! :D

    Found on the net but made me laugh...

    One night a mindreader closes her set by reading the mind of the each of the musicians in the band.

    First, she reads the mind of the lead guitarist: "Wow, look at all the cute chicks who showed up tonight! I bet they're all here to see me. Good crowd!"

    Then the drummer: "Look at that crowd! With this many people in the house, we're going to make good money tonight!"

    Then the Keyboard player: "Yeesh, look at that crowd. None of them will ever truly appreciate all of my talent. What a bunch of losers."

    Finally, the Bass player: "E E E E E E E E A A A A A A A A E E E E E E E E..."

    My personal favorite is:

    Guy arrives on a tropical island and hears drums playing. Every time he asks "what's with the drums" they say "Drums stop, very, very bad!" Finally he can't take it any more and makes one of the islanders tell him what happens. The islander says, "It's very, very bad. When drums stop, bass solo!"

    That's the abridged version, drag it out as long as your guitar solos.:p
