Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Weekend Funnies

Here are three musical jokes my grandchildren told me recently.

#1.  A Vienna musician walked through Währing cemetery shortly after  Beethoven's death.  He was surprised to hear a strange musical sound, which he quickly recognized as Beethoven's 9th Symphony, but backwards.  Even stranger, the music seemed to be flowing, not from the grave, but back into it.

The next day, he had a similar experience with the 8th Symphony.  This continued for several days.  On the day of the 1st Symphony he approached the cemetery custodian to ask about these strange events.

"Not really so strange," was the reply.  "You see, he's decomposing."

#2.  What music did the Pink panther hear when he stepped on an ant hill?

Dead ant -- dead ant -- dead ant, dead ant, dead ant . . .  

#3.  Where does the Lone Ranger take his trash?

To the dump, to the dump, to the dump, dump dump . . .

Those last two are grade school staples. As an elementary teacher I would have them told to me 4-5 times every years. They still make me smile.
