C, E-flat and G go into a bar. The bartender says, "sorry, but we don’t serve minors."

So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished and G is out flat.

F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough.

D comes in and heads for the bathroom saying, "Excuse me. I’ll just be a second."

Then A comes in, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor.

Then the bartender notices B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and says, "Get out! You’re the seventh minor I've found in this bar tonight."

E-Flat comes back the next night in a three-piece suit with nicely shined shoes. The bartender says, "You're looking sharp tonight. Come on in, this could be a major development."

Sure enough, E-flat soon takes off his suit and everything else, and is au natural.

C is brought to trial, found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of D.S. without Coda at an upscale correctional facility.


An American choir had just arrived in Europe for a two-week tour.

One hour before the first concert, the choir director became very ill and was unable to conduct, and the choir suddenly had to find a substitute.

The choir manager asked everyone in the choir whether they could step in and conduct, and the only person who was willing was the last chair alto.

The manager was very nervous about this. "We can't audition you," he said.

"No problem," replied the alto.

"There's no time to rehearse. You'll have to do the concert cold."

"I know. It'll be all right."

The alto conducted the concert and it was a huge success.

Since the director remained ill for the duration of the tour, the alto conducted all of the concerts, getting rave reviews and standing ovations at each one.

At the next rehearsal, the director had recovered, and the alto took her place at the back of the alto section. As she sat down, her stand partner asked her "Where have you been for the last two weeks?"


A minister was completing a Temperance sermon.

Then with even greater emphasis he said, "And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he shouted, "And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

With the sermon complete, he sat down.

Then the song leader stood up and announced, "For our closing song, let us sing Hymn number 365, "Shall We Gather at the River."
