Okay, silly as all get-out joke I heard in Maryland this weekend past:

Pirate walks into a bar, the pirate has (of all things) a steering wheel attached to his ---.

The bartender serves the pirate, but cannot help asking, "Pardon me, but is that a steering wheel attached to, well, to your ---?

"Arrr! And it's driving me nuts."


This cheeseburger walks into a bar and says "gimme a beer!"

Bartender says, "I'm sorry, we don't serve food here."

"Relationships are hard. It's like a full-time job, and we should treat it like one. If your boyfriend or girlfriend wants to leave you, they should give you two weeks' notice. There should be severance pay, and before they leave you, they should have to find you a temp." (Bob Ettinger)


Rene Descartes went into his favorite bar and the bar tender asked, "would you like your usual drink, Monsieur Descartes? " Descartes replied "I think not" and promptly disappeared.


Isn't the Grand Canyon just gorges?

Ever hear the one about the airplane? No? Well it was over your head anyway.


My dad used to tell this joke, usually to play the bad boy for his parents, who were members of a teetotalling church.

A minister, eager to teach his children about the evils of Demon Rum, gets two large jars, one filled with water, the other with alcohol. Into each, he puts an earthworm. In the water, the earthworm thrives. In the alcohol, it quickly dies and shrivels.

"Now, son, what does that tell you?" the minister asks.

The son answered, "If you drink a lot, you'll never have worms!"

What's the difference between a viola and a coffin? A coffin has a dead person on the inside.
What do you do with a dead violist? Move him back a desk.
How do you make a viola section play tremolando pianissimo? Mark a passage soli.

All of them orchestra favourites passed down from generation to generation.

And the best viola joke, though sadly it only works in German:

Was sind die drei Lagen auf der Bratsche?
Erste Lage, Notlage, und Niederlage.

(What are the three positions of the viola?
First position, emergency, and defeat.)

The large print giveth, and the small print taketh away

Courtesy of Bette Midler:

A man goes to the doctor, very upset.

Man: "I've got a really embarrassing personal problem. I can't stop doing silent farts. On the way here, I did six silent farts. Sitting in reception, I did four silent farts. And while I've been sat here talking to you, I've done two, whoops, no, make that three, silent farts. Can you do anything to help me?"

Doctor: "Well, the first thing I'm gonna do is check your hearing."


The orchestra's conductor cried off, suddenly, before the concert.

Efforts by management to find a replacement were fruitless.

Eventually, they were forced to look at the qualifications of the musicians and discovered that the principal violist had attended a Summer School in conducting only the year before.

He was offered the concert and took it. It was a huge success.

Next morning at rehearsal his colleague said to him: "Where were you last night?"


I once told a theory professor this joke...

He came back with this one -

Knock knock.

Who's there?

Interr-- HALF CADENCE!!!

Robert Schumann: Cello Concerto in A minor, Op. 129 ~ Maria Kliegel, Andrew Constantine / Nat.Sym.Orch of Ireland

Boring Romantic drivel of the worst sort; this stuff gives the Classical genre a bad name.

This was a good one too!  :)
