    Getting Even with Styxx

    Not so Christmasy, but I think it's cute.

    A C, an E-flat, and a G go into a bar. The bartender says, "Sorry, we don't serve minors." So the E4lat leaves, and the C and the G have an open fifth between them.

    After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished and the G is out flat. An F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough; A D comes into the bar and heads straight for the bathroom saying, "Excuse me. I'll just be a second."

    Then an A comes into the bar, but the bartender is convinced that this relative of C is a minor. Then the bartender notices a B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and exclaims, "Get out now. You're the seventh minor I've found in this bar tonight."

    The E-flat, not easily deflated, comes back to the bar the next night in a 3-piece suit with nicely shined shoes. The bartender (who used to have a nice corporate job until his company downsized) says, "You're looking sharp tonight, come on in! This could be a major development."

    This proves to be the case, as the E-flat takes off the suit, and everything else, and stands there au natural.

    Eventually, the C sobers up, and realizes in horror that he's under a rest; The C is brought to trial, is found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of DS without Coda at an upscale correctional facility.

    On appeal, however, the C is found innocent of any wrongdoing, even accidental, and that all accusations to the contrary are bass-less.

    The bartender decides, however, that since he's only had tenor so patrons, and the soprano out in the bathroom, everything has become alto much treble; he needs a rest, and closes the bar.

    Up to and including eighth notes!
    That is excellent Karl!

    Now it's my turn ...

    "A Present For The Teacher"

    On the last day before Christmas vacation, all the children brought presents for their teacher. The florist's son handed the teacher a gift. She shook it, held it up and said, "I bet I know what it is - it's some flowers!" "That's right!" shouted the little boy.

    Then the candy store owner's daughter handed the teacher a gift She held it up, shook it and said. "I bet I know what it is - it's a box of candy!"

    "That's right!" shouted the little girl.

    The next gift was from the liquor store owner's son. The teacher held it up and saw that it was leaking. She touched a drop with her finger and tasted it. "Is it wine?" she asked.

    "No," the boy answered.

    The teacher touched another drop to her tongue. "Is it champagne?" she asked.

    "No," the boy answered.

    Finally, the teacher said, "I give up. What is it?"

    The boy replied, "A puppy!"

    Yes, even 8th notes.

    I was really scared to post that little joke. So scared I had to consult my staff. As I posted I was "quavering" (one for the Brits) in my boots.
