    Oh, no no no -- not at all, my friend.

    I was simply taking this opportunity to introduce the...

    Sosnowski Lemon

    ... a powerful new aid for MIDI composers. One
    simply sucks on it while working to distract one from
    the sour taste of being unable to work in notation,
    as God intended.

    It was fear, Gary, plain old fear. Once I put this idea
    out there, I was scared silly I'd be swamped in orders
    for more Sosnowski Lemons than I could possibly ship!

    And it was justified, too!

    Why, orders are coming in by the thousands, so fast
    I can barely keep up! Soon, I may run out of lemons...

    Now what do I do?

    The answer is obvious... hire an IRS agent.
    " Everyone at the local bar were confident that the bartender was the strongest man and they were so sure, they had a bar room bet.......The winner would win a thousand dollars. The bartender would squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran into a glass, and hand the lemon to a patron. Anyone who could squeeze one more drop of juice out of the lemon would win the money.

    Many people tried to squeeze the lemon, but failed. Typical "Strong men" (weight-lifters, truck drivers, etc.) could not beat the local bartender.

    One day a scrawny, geeky little man came into the bar. He inquired about the lemon & glass. Timidly the man says "I'd like to try the bet" After the laughter died down, the bartender said OK, grabbed a fresh lemon, and squeezed away. Then he handed the wrinkled remains to the little man. To the crowd's amazement, thier laughter turned to total silence as the man clenched his fist around the lemon and six drops fell into the glass. As the crowd cheered, the bartender paid the $1000, and asked the little man "What do you do for a living? Are you a lumberjack, a weight-lifter, trucker or what?" To which the man replied "Nope........I work for the IRS."

    Order more lemons from your supplier, please! They are far more musical than sour grapes!

    I thought it was going to be a real banana, wrapped in foil, with wires hooked to each end... but this is even better.
