    Couldn't be bothered to read beyond the first page, so I don't know if my favourite viola player joke is there.

    "What is the difference between a viola player and a seamstress?

    The seamstress tucks up the frills."

    Ugh, I knew somebody had to come up with this thread... I'm shocked that nobody seems to have until now. Or thankful.
    You get a frog in your throat, you sound hoarse.

    Hmm, most of these are pretty generic (you can substitute in lawyers, blondes, or anything else you choose). Not all of them though; I thought this was somewhat funny:
    What do a viola and a lawsuit have in common?
    Everyone is happy when the case is closed.

    Yes, sorry to contribute. I don't know why it's the poor violists who get it in the neck. Now if it was *singers*, I could understand it.

    What's the difference between the first and last desk of a viola section?
    half a measure
    a semi-tone
    I lol'd!

    How do you transcribe a violin piece for viola?
    Divide the metronome marking by 2.
    This one's great too!

    Was sind die drei Lagen auf der Bratsche?
    Erste Lage, Notlage, und Niederlage.
    Best one on the page!
